Beans, Mitla Black Tepary (80 days) - Phaseolus acutifolius -

Drought adapted landrace variety native to northern Mexico with 18” tall, semi-vining plants that produce pink flowers and then green pods that dry to a buff color. Pods dry down too reveal 5-6 small black beans. Leaves of this species are smaller than typical P.vulgaris species leaves which may contribute to it’s drought adaptation.  We tend to irrigate them as we have found that dryland yields are substantially less than irrigated.  They cook up into a rich tasty meal of black beans that remain firm.
