Arikara Yellow Beans
Garden Treasure Farms grows a bean

The Arikara people are now a North Dakota tribe after their population was devastated by smallpox in the 18th century. Previously, centuries ago, they were a semi-nomadic tribe living in the Great Plains and were primarily an agricultural society, cultivating crops including corn, squash, watermelon, pumpkins, and Arikara Yellow beans.

It is commonly believed that these yellow beans were transported with Lewis and Clark as they journeyed west.

This bean is hardy and keeps its shape when baked.
