Blue Speckled Tepary Bean

80 days. Tan and blue-grey spotted beans, unique flavor in traditional Southwestern dishes. Tepary beans were a premier crop in the native cultures of the Sonoran desert and surrounding regions. They are very drought- and heat-tolerant, and in much of the country they may be grown without irrigation. They are of a thin-stemmed sprawling bush to half-runner habit. The seeds are smaller than common beans, produced in staggering profusion in small pods yielding several seeds per pod.

What are the pros? My favorite bean!

What are the cons? None!

Review:

I <3 my Blue Speckled Tepary beans! <3 Sauted Tepary Beans Wash and rinse the fresh shelled beans, cover with water and set aside. (Or soak dry beans until double in size, rinse and drain.) Dice an onion and a red bell pepper (or any pepper you choose)...saute the pepper and onion until the onion is translucent. Drain the beans and add them to the onion and pepper, cover with vegetable broth. Simmer until most of the liquid is gone, stirring occasionally until the beans are tender. A very meaty texture and slightly sweet. A unique taste, reminiscent of baked beans without the need for brown sugar. <3 <3 My husband is the chef but I told him how I wanted them cooked...he suggested celery, I objected and insisted on sauted onion...the bell pepper was his idea. Next time we'll try a hotter pepper. He asked what the taste like and how long do they cook? I said I have no idea, this is the first time growing or eating them, we'll just play it by ear. It turned out exceptionally well!

What are the pros? Easy to plant

What are the cons? Nothing so far.

Review:

WOW! I've never seen anything sprout up so quickly. I had to do a double take to make sure it was the tepary beans and not some weed coming up. All of the seeds sprouted too! They seem like magic beans. I can't wait to harvest and glad I picked these up.

What are the pros? Fast growth, carefree

What are the cons? Need trellis, small seeds

Review:

I direct seeded these following garlic harvest, which allowed an easy and productive double crop from those beds. I watered them in (the directions on the package said not to) with no adverse affects. With no trellis, the vines got pretty tangled up and droopy; quite a few mature pods (and thus beans) were lost because they were touching the ground and developed mildew, though of course that's my own fault. The seeds are small and somewhat fiddly, but that's not a major concern. I grew these to add diversity to my bean planting--some that do well when hot and dry (these), some that do well when cooler and wet (runner beans), and some that do pretty well regardless (common beans).

What are the pros? easy - did not stake

What are the cons? none

Review:

planted in spring, outproduced my other tepary beans, lots of small pods, no pest entire season, hard flat small beans, easy to shell when dry - smash in shells and blow off chaff, produces more dried beans per space than most regular beans, cook the same as regular beans EASY EASY - don't need much water, just heat and bright space

What are the pros? Heavy producer

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these beans in a 3 sisters garden in Phoenix. Planted them at the base of the Glass Gem corn as it was tasseling. I was unsure if they would produce given our high temps but grew well even though we had 100 degree temps well into October.
