Rancho Gordo - Ayocote Negro Bean / 16 oz.

  • Product of Mexico.

Ayocotes are runner beans (like the more well-known Scarlet Runners). Ayocote Negro are firm without being starchy and have a darker, inky bean broth than other runner beans enjoy. They are large, bold and one of the first beans we recommend if you're trying to sell a "steak and potatoes"-type on heirloom beans. 

Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, the Ayocote family was one of the first cultivated crops of the New World. They are grown all over central and northern Mexico. If you plant them, you can enjoy the flowers, eat the pods as a broad bean or shell them fresh for shelling beans, but the best way to enjoy them is dried and cooked, so you can experience their fully developed flavor. 

Please note that this is not a traditional black turtle bean. When cooked, it's very similar to the Ayocote Morado or even Scarlet Runners. For a traditional turtle bean, we suggest our Midnight Black beans.
