Bush Dry Bean, Tiger’s Eye (Organic)

$3.50$14.00

Phaseolus vulgaris. Tan Speckled. 90 days.

This was our most popular dry bean at farmer’s market. Stunningly beautiful, the large golden-orange beans are streaked with maroon and really catch the eye. But what keeps folks coming back for more is the eating quality: the tender skins nearly disappear, leaving a creamy and smooth texture perfect for soups, refried beans, chili, or any other bean dish. An heirloom originally from South America, said to be the same as Pepa de Zapallo. Indeterminate pod maturity makes this bean more suited to harvesting pods as they ripen rather than harvesting whole plants all at once.

    Question

    Evelyn Reiman

    I just received my order (#16439). Thank you! My question has to do with the appearance of the beans I received. The colors are quite different than the photo. Is there a chance I received a different variety?

      Hi Evelyn, Thanks for the question! You have the correct variety. Beans darken a bit as they age & the photo is of fresh beans. Your fresh harvest will produce beans that are brighter / lighter colored than the beans you received & will be more true to the photo. Thanks again for bringing this up – it might help others with the same question. Good luck! – Sarah
