Seeds saving: beginner
Caje Muni Bean (Vigna unguiculata)
Caje Muni bean (Vigna unguiculata): this black-eyed bean comes from the Sonoran desert. It is part of the research carried on ecotypes with less water demands, for both, sustainability and cultivation in drought soil conditions. It is our third year of experimental cultivation and we have not yet tried dry farming nor cultivation, tests that we will carry out this season (2021).
The plant is very rustic and undemanding, less vigorous than other black-eyed beans, especially suitable for those who grow in difficult conditions. The current area of greatest production of black-eyed beans extends to the countries of the Southern Sahara, reflecting the great rusticity of the ecotypes of this species.
It is very rare in Europe (distributed only on our site), also available in some seed banks that specialize in cultivars suitable for arid areas.
For those who love to experiment, for collectors, and for those who need an exceptionally tolerant ecotype.
