50 "Rio Zape" Zuni String Beans, Phaseolus vulgaris
In 1935, Rio Zape beans (AKA Hopi String beans), were found in the Ancestral Pueblo cliff dwellings of the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico. Then, in the 1960s, archaeologists found them in the excavation of a sealed tomb in Rio Zape, Durango, Mexico. It's believed that the beans were sealed in the tomb around 600 AD. A beautiful bean with a mysterious history!
