Bean, Black Turtle

92% of 100

Bush. 95 days. Splendid dark purple-black bean that is widely grown throughout Latin America and known by numerous common names. The compact bush plants are very productive and yield reliably even in the north! Flavor is rich and texture is meaty—try these in vegetarian chili or as frijoles refritos in burritos. Due to the coloration, this variety offers the bonus of a high anthocyanin content, too! We offer a select northern hardy strain that has been grown for many years by the Doug Baty family of Dixon, Montana, but originally collected in a village in Mexico.
