When cooked, they have an appealing creamy texture and mild, nutty flavor that blends well with stronger flavors like chilies, and garlic, so they make superior refritos. The dried beans are easy to extract from the pods for winter storage, making them an economical crop and a fun project to get kids involved with.
All my seeds come in reusable ziplock bags with planting instructions. Note if you order more than one of these pack I will ship them together in one package unless otherwise requested.
