Beans

Our bean seeds include the following:

Fava Beans

Introduced by the Spanish for cool season agriculture. The large seeds are eaten both green and dry. Fava are the most efficient nitrogen fixers of all the annual legumes, making them an excellent cover crop.

Garbanzo Beans

This Old World legume was introduced by the Spanish. Native Americans and Hispanics eat the beans green and dried.

Lima Beans

Growing as perennial vines in their native tropical environment, Lima Beans are bread, flat beans eaten green or dried. Plants are tolerant of salt and alkaline soils.

Tepary Beans

First grown in the Southwest during the time of the Hohokam Indians, Teparies mature quickly and are tolerant of the low desert heat, drought and alkaline soils. Soak the dried beans before cooking. Members of the legume family, beans fix nitrogen from the air if certain bacteria are present in the soil to infect the roots. Beans also contain soluble fiber helpful in controlling cholesterol and diabetes.
