Bush Dry Bean, Arikara (Organic)
Phaseolus vulgaris. Yellow Brown. 80 days.
Super early maturing dry bean once grown by the Arikara Tribe in North Dakota. The seed has a unique yellow-brown color and tastes great cooked up straight or even refried. It can be challenging to grow dry beans in western Oregon but Arikara is a reliable variety in our area. Found cultivated along the Missouri River by Lewis and Clark, and sent back to Thomas Jefferson in 1805. Listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste.
