These beans are our fave's. There is quite a history in these beans. These beans were extinct. An archaeologist discovered them in a basket while working a dig at Mesa Verde and tried to grow them. He had great success with them, so people started farming them in Doloris CO. They started selling them in the Gourmet areas of the grocery store or you can buy them by the gunnysack in Farmington NM or Doloris CO, Aztec NM, Dove Creek CO.
