Arikara Yellow Bean
The Arikara Yellow Bean was a primary food crop for the Mandan and the Arikara American Indian tribes of the Missouri Valley?the former is the bean’s name bearer. Both its hard shell and its tendency to hold shape make the Arikara Yellow an excellent dry bean. Arikara Yellow plants are extremely prolific in producing these yellowish-tan seeds as well as very drought-resistant, making them the ideal market bean plant.
