Some of the most heat and drought tolerant crops in the world, tepary beans have been a staple of desert-dwelling Native Americans for thousands of years. In Tohono O'odham legends, the stars of the Milky Way are tepary beans. This particular seed comes to us from Sonora, Mexico and produces small to medium white beans (some may have some blue speckling). Extremely high in protein, these beans are also very low on the glycemic index (29), making them especially good for diabetics.

Pods should be harvested as they dry; if left too long on the plant they will pop open and disperse their seeds. Alternatively, you can harvest the whole plant when pods are turning brown, allow them to dry on a sheet, then thresh and winnow seeds. This plant is a self-pollinating annual.

Each package contains approximately 50 seeds/7 g.
