What a great bean this is! At the farmers markets, this is the bean that seems to attract more people than any other. Whether it's the name, the beautiful gold color or the small, bullet size, who can say? The good news is that the bean is as delicious as it looks.
It's quick growing and unique tasting. I've heard that in some areas they're called Buckeye but for most of us, they'll always be Yellow Indian Woman.
Yellow Indian Woman is incredibly creamy, almost more like a classic black turtle bean than anything else. It's dense without being intense, if that makes sense. It's thought to be originally from Montana, known for its short growing season.
Latin name: Phaseolus vulgaris
