Phaseolus acutifolius var. latifolius
30 seeds/pack | 70-90 days | Heirloom
These small white beans were first cultivated by the Hohokam Native American tribe. They were commercially cultivated by the Gila river near Sacaton, AZ. We found these to be prolific beyond belief and quite drought tolerant. They have a bush habit so no need to trellis. To harvest, let all the pods dry and cut the whole plant at base. Wrap all the cut plants in a sheet and do the hokey pokey! After stomping remove larger plant material by hand and winnow to remove pods and chaff.
