Arikara Yellow Drying Beans

Drying Bean - Arikara Yellow

Phaseolus vulgaris

HEIRLOOM A prolific bushy variety. Plants produce yellow-tan seeds that are great for baking. Has a good drought tolerance. Seeds were originally grown by the Arikara tribe of North Dakota. The Arikara Yellow bean is on the Slow Foods Arc of Taste!
In truth, any bean can be left on the plant until the pod and seeds are dry and then later cooked up for eating. This particular selection of beans are varieties that have exceptional taste, texture, and history specifically as drying beans intended for long term storage. Without dried beans, options for protein during the lean months, after the fall harvest and before next year’s crop has matured, would be scarce. Thanks to them, many populations have made it through the winter. Nutrients: dietary fiber, protein, vitamins A and C and riboflavin.(1/2 oz Packet)
