The Yellow Indian Woman Bean was originally brought to Montana by a Swedish family. It is a rare heirloom bean that is now found in Native American communities in Montana. The Yellow Indian Woman is a small, yellowish-gold bean that, when cooked, is creamy and resembles the flavor of Pinto and Black beans. It is ideal for slow-cooked dishes, as the bean holds its shape while cooking.
We also understand these originated in central Mexico and the Southwest part of the US, like Appaloosa, Painted Pony, and several other superb beans.
This bean is also called “Buckskin” and it is excellent by any name. We use it in one of our chili recipes and our customers love them!
