Ramona Farms

Organic Brown Tepary Bean

These organic heirloom beans are the original superfood of the Sonoran Desert having sustained Native American people for countless generations.  Tepary beans are higher in protein and nutrients than other beans, making them an excellent addition to everything from salads to pasta. The brown tepary has a subtle earthy flavor with an almost nut-like taste and an aroma that is reminiscent of the smell of a summer rain on the desert. 

Ramona Farms shares with us their traditional foods grown on the ancestral lands of the Akimel O'Odham (Gila River Pima) tribe in Arizona's Sonora Desert. An ingredient in the Slow Food Ark of Taste, the tepary bean is believed to be the world’s most drought tolerant bean, and higher in fiber and protein than most other beans with a low glycemic index and superior taste.

Brown Teperary beans

These are delicious beans. I wanted to cook something that had its origins in this hemisphere so I chose these beans. I didn’t know what sort of dish would be appropriate so I used a baked bean recipe. They were perfect. They were so good I ate them for breakfast the next day. Thank you for making them available. I haven’t tried the other beans I bought. I am saving them for another special occasion.

High quality

These beans are well-sorted, not a single bad bean in the bag. Clearly cultivated with care. Excellent texture and exhibiting a lovely nutty flavor. A new favorite in our household!
