Tiburon Island Wild Tepary

PW096

Phaseolus acutifolius var. tenuifolius. A wild black tepary bean originally collected on Tiburon Island off the coast of Sonora, Mexico, in the Sea of Cortez.  Traditionally harvested by the Seri Indians. Much smaller and more difficult to germinate 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.
