Phaseolus acutifolius var. latifolius
30 seeds/pack | 80 days | Heirloom
Copious producer of small black beans with a nutty flavor. These beans are native to the arid Mitla region of Oaxaca, MX. Mitlas are quite drought tolerant, requiring little water and adapted to hot climates. Compared to other tepary beans these tend to vine and could be trellised for ease of harvest. In 2009 Kalan visited the Mitla ruins of Oaxaca known for the intricate plaster and stone patterns still visible.
