Heirloom Black Tepary Bean - 24 oz

Ex Tax

Grown and harvested by Ramona Farms in Sacaton, Arizona, a community on the Gila River reservation in Arizona. Black Tepary Beans, or S-chuuk Bavi, originated in the American Southwest and are rich in fiber and protein with a low glycemic index. Extremely drought tolerant, they were domesticated by Native Americans.

Specially selected from rare heirloom tepary seed crops, these beans have been cultivated through an ancient tradition of separating black seeds from the white and brown seeds before planting. Meticulously grown, harvested, and selected over the years, black tepary beans have a hearty, bold taste and a firm texture that holds its shape when cooked.

Heirloom Black Tepary Bean - 24 oz

Tasty and Tough

See prior review- soaked overnight, the cooked for a couple hours til slightly tender. Made a mad/delicious soffrito, but the beans now in their 6th hour are still plenty toothsome. Flavor is great and we are eating anyhow with homegrown salad and cornbread, but dang that’s a lotta cooking!

Tasty but hard to cook

Used these as a replacement for black beans in a chili. It was delicious but even after soaking/cooking the repeat beans for 24 hours they were still a little tough.
