Tepary Beans?

Post  countrynaturals on 8/27/2017, 6:03 pm

Anybody else grow these? It's my first year, they're starting to produce, and I can't find any info on when and how to harvest and how to prepare/preserve them. It's probably not rocket science. I imagine they're a lot like limas (which I'm also growing) but I'd love to hear from someone with some expertise.

I don't have any experience with them.  What I am reading is certainly interesting.  They are a different New World bean species than the regular beans or Lima beans or running beans.  Sounds like they are usually dryed and are extremily heat and drought tolerant.  I guess for South West Three Sister gardens these are what was grown.
Look at them all!  https://shop.nativeseeds.org/collections/tepary-beans

Recipes seem to assume a dry bean that you soak and simmer a long time.

CN,  Where did you buy your seeds? Never mind. Baker Creek, right?

Nope. Sustainable Seed Co. right here in CA. Great prices and free shipping, but not a wide selection.
