Tiger’s Eye Shell & Dry Bean ECO(65 days shell, 85 days dry) The Tiger comes and goes. This year it’s BACK! Also called Pepa de Zapallo, originally from Argentina and Chile. Among the most beautiful of all beans, bright golden ochre with maroon swirls and a smattering that are maroon with golden speckles. That would be reason enough to grow them, but they also make superb fresh shell and delicious baked beans with rich full-bodied flavor. A good pinto substitute: the tender skins pretty much disappear upon cooking. Wide 4" pods fill with large flattened kidney-shaped seeds mostly white at the shell stage but taking on more yellow as they dry. Bush plants grow 2' with a slight tendency to vine. ① BACK!
