Why they're Slow Food & a Treasured Heirloom:
Dapple Grey beans are said to be sister beans of the Anasazi beans cultivated for centuries by the Anasazi people of the U.S. southwest. Dapple Grey beans are an American heirloom treasured for their sweeter flavor and slightly mealy texture, which lends to the beans being an excellent addition to thick soups.
Now Dapple Grey beans are grown and harvested with much care by many smaller producers and home gardeners. We chose beans from Zursun due to their founder’s dedication to growing, perfecting, and protecting the most delicious bean varieties. We’ve been told Idaho, where this batch of beans was grown, is the downright perfect agricultural setting for nurturing these gorgeous legumes.
