Organic Blue Speckled Tepary Bean Seeds ( 80 days)

Tepary Beans were used for many generations by many Native American cultures as a staple and reliable food crop. 

Over the years they were selected to be more drought tolerant and heat tolerant.  (However, they do not like wet heavy clay soils.  They need good drainage.)

Tepary beans are much higher in fiber and protein that other beans. 

The flavor and texture is deep, meaty and dense. 

Growth habit is semi-bush with runners.  

Blue Speckled is believed to be a seed race of Mayan decent.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:

50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65° or higher. Grow best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Avoid planting in soil that stays wet.  Heirloom bean diseases thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.

Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5.  This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur. 

Try wide row growing for bush beans.  Make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one.  Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width.  You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you'll save on water.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
