Bean Bush, Blue Speckled Tepary (Phaseolus acutifolius)

This rare bean is originally from Mexico and adapted to desert conditions. Quick growing with long roots that reach for moisture...grown in Arizona desert by native Americans, because of its ability to produce a quick, high protein crop.

The growth habit is semi-bush with runners, low growing, small leaf. 

One of the most beautiful seeds to look at, used as a dried soup bean of flour.

Blue Speckled is believed to be of Mayan descent.
