Jacob's Cattle Bean


90 day.  Also known as the Anasazi bean, the Aztec bean, Cave bean or New Mexico appaloosa bean, it was originally cultivated by the Passamaquoddy Indians in Maine.  It's a standard for baked beans in the Northeast.  It's named after the spotted cattle in the biblical story, and it is well adapted to growing in areas with cool summers.

Cool looking bean

Great germination rate. When I started shelling these beans after they dried, I was curious why I had so few Jacob's Cattle beans, then I remembered that I every time I walked by these beans during the summer I picked a few pods to eat. I don't know if that was good or bad but they sure tasted good when they were green.
