Santa Catalina Wild Tepary Bean seeds are among the smallest of the wild teparies in our collection. This plant has a poling habitat and can grow wildly. Teparies reseed readily, pods will easily "pop" open when dry. Be cautious if you are shy about controlling these plants. But if you plant them, you will be richly rewarded with beautifully flavored beans. They are smaller than and can be more difficult to germinate than domesticated teparies, but they are a fun exploration of agricultural history and wild plant conservation. Before planting, scarify seeds by sanding the seed coat lightly to allow water to penetrate.
Approx. 50 seeds per packet.
