Kitt Peak Wild Tepary

PW105

Phaseolus acutifolius var. tenuifolius. From Kitt Peak in the Baboquivari Mountains of the Tohono O'odham Reservation. By far the highest-elevation collection of wild teparies in our collection. Readily reseeds, pods will easily "pop" open when dry. Much smaller than domesticated teparies, but a fun exploration of agricultural history and wild plant conservation. Before planting, scarify seeds by sanding the seed coat lightly to allow water to penetrate.  From our Seed-Bank Collection.

  • Origin: High Desert
  • Habit: Plant will twine and climb
  • Approx. 1g/50 seeds per packet.
