What a great bean this is! It's quick growing and unique tasting. It goes by a few different names, including Yellow Indian Woman (which is what we used to call it).
At the farmers markets, this is the bean that seems to attract more people than any other. Whether it's the name, the beautiful gold color or the small, bullet size, who can say? The good news is that the bean is as delicious as it looks.
Buckeye is incredibly creamy, almost more like a classic black turtle bean than anything else. It's dense without being intense, if that makes sense. It's thought to be originally from Montana, known for its short growing season.
