Bean, 1500 Year Old Cave

90% of 100

Pole. The amazing native bean reputedly found in a cave in New Mexico, in a clay pot sealed with pitch. When carbon dated, the tests showed it to be 1,500 years old! Long vines climb to 10’ and produce tasty pods. Beans are large and kidney-shaped, white with maroon mottling. Very rare collector’s bean.
