Santa Catalina Wild Tepary
Phaseolus acutifolius var. latifolius. From the Santa Catalina Mountains near Tucson. Seeds are among the smallest of all wild teparies in our collection. 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.
- Origin: High Desert
