Zuni Shalako Bean Seeds Prairie Appaloosa


Zuni Shalako Bean Seeds. These heirloom beans are native to Southwestern United States and Mexico. These beautiful beans are sometimes called Prairie Appaloosa Bean because of their coloration. The name of the Zuni Shalako Bean: The Zuni Tribe grew these beans and used them in their winter ceremony where they were given to them by the Shalako Kachina. This is a bush type plant that stays under 2 feet tall but has a similar habit to Pinto beans sending up an occasional runner as any bean that wants more light will. The bush plants produce an abundant amount of pods containing small beans that average 1/4" wide and 3/8" long. Harvest Zuni Shalako early and cook as fresh snap or shell beans or let fully mature for a dry bean. Zuni Shalako Bean or Prairie Appaloosa Bean are perfect used as a dry bean in southwest dishes because of their ability to absorb flavors such as chile peppers. 50 days until harvest for green snap beans, 60 - 65 days until harvest for fresh beans, or 75 days until harvest for dry beans. Harvest as dry beans when the pod is dry and the bean can not easily be dented with your fingernail.  Packet contains approximately 50 seeds grown naturally with love and care.  Happy Planting!  We have a wide variety of Heirloom Vegetable, Herb, and Flower Seeds for sale.
