Chihuahuan Wild TeparyPW095
Phaseolus acutifolius var. tenuifolius. Collected near the border of Chihuahua and Sonora, this is one of only two wild teparies from Mexico conserved in the Native Seeds/SEARCH seed bank. Readily reseeds, pods will easily "pop" open when dry. 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.
