Tepary Beans, Black - Ancient Superfood Available in 24 oz. or 5 lb. Bag

  • FD161.5LB
  • A rare, recent selection from heirloom tepary seed crops, the hearty flavored S-chuuk Bavi (black tepary bean) is as highly nutritious and wholesome as the brown and the white tepary beans. Born of an ancient tradition of separating the black seeds before planting the white or brown teparies, the black seeds were planted grown, harvested and selected over many years to bring out the hidden traits of this unique tepary bean. Its firm texture and subtle, rich flavor works well in many recipes.

    Like its cousins the S-totoah bavi (White Tepary) and the S-oam Bavi (Brown Tepary), this S-chuuk bavi (Black Tepary) is drought adapted, has a high soluble and insoluble fiber content, is high in protein and is a low glycemic index food.

    Now available in 24 o. bag, or 5 lb. bag.

    Food item, not sold as seed.

Huge order

I made a huge order of beans and Pinole and other herbal blends a few months ago and I was surprised at how good they were!

Black tepary beans from Ramona Farms

I was given a 1 lb. bag of black tepary beans and prepared them in a clay pot. I froze half for later and made the rest into a stew/soup with fire-roasted tomatoes, onion and garlic, Mexican oregano, and New Mexico red chile powder. It is true that they take 8 hours to cook, but they were well worth it, a nice change from pinto beans. Now I want to try the white and brown varieties.
