Phaseolus acutifolius

90 days. Short season tepary bean selected by Joseph Lofthouse of Landrace Garden Seeds in Paradise, Utah. These had no problem maturing at Giving Ground Farm. A landrace is a regionally adapted crop which contains greater diversity than a variety.

How to grow it:

Tepary beans are native to North America and are heat and drought tolerant. Plant 1" deep and 6" apart after all danger of frost has passed. Plants are not tolerant of much shade. Do not over water. Bush plants will not climb a trellis. Harvest dry plants and shake in a bag to free beans from pods. Use a fan to blow off chaff.
