TEPARY BEAN (Phaseolus acutifolius) (100-120 days)—This true gem produces great here in the Midwest and appears to be less impacted by increased amounts of rain. The slight glow of green in the white background pops. Tasty treat will bring you a smile. Best to not water these at all. Space these out well when growing as the airflow is necessary to reduce bacterial and fungal damage to the seeds. Tepary beans, domesticated and grown in the Sonoran Desert for thousands of years, are among the most drought and heat tolerant crops in the world, are delicious.
