10 Anasazi "Cave" Pole Beans, Phaseolus vulgaris, USDA Organic
Pack of 50 beans. Annual. 50 to 55 days. This is a 1,500 year old heirloom cultivar. The original stock for these beans were discovered by modern paleontologists, sealed with pine tar inside an ancient clay pot in a cave. The cave bean turned out to be a vigorous pole bean that makes flattened green beans. Can be eaten fresh or as a dried bean.
The beans are similar to Pintos, but taste sweet and creamy and cook to a smooth texture. They cook a bit faster than modern dry beans, and are about 75% less gassy.
