description for "Beans: Phaseolus vulgaris 'Bolita'"

History and flavor combine for an amazing bean. Billed as one of the original beans brought to New Mexico by Spanish settlers, this creamy tan colored bean is prolific in growth and delicious in taste. Its richer, sweeter taste is easier to digest than the more popular Pinto Bean. This fast cooking variety is ideal in soups and casseroles. While it grows like a bush bean, it technically is not classified as one. Maturity in 50-75 days. Edited by S. Derr

History:

Native to Spain
