People don't tend to know how beautiful bean flowers are. Let's put an end to that right now! These were the last to germinate but the first to bloom. They are a Tarahumara Tekomari runner bean (which is kind of funny as they are known for being such good runners themselves.) These are Black runner beans. So far I haven't seen much of a yield and now that the rain is starting I think it's really time to explore more cooking with bean flowers. This is a red bean called Taos. It was a healthy plant all sumnmer and we got a good yield from it. The pods and beans are both red but the flowers are white.
