These showstoppers are a stunning addition to any dish. Black Turtle Beans are small, oval and have a beautiful, shiny, jet-black coat with rich cream-colored flesh that imparts a soft, yet hardy, earthy flavor with a hint of mushroom. A staple for Caribbean and Latin American cuisines, Black Turtle is a favorite choice for soup, Bean dips and salads. Also known as Black BeansTurtle Soup BeansMexican Blacks and Frijoles Negros, Black Turtle is a South American heirloom introduced to the U.S. in the late 1700s. Due to the coloration, this variety offers the bonus of a high anthocyanin content, too! A tall bush bean that keeps pods off of the ground. Matures in 95-100 days.

Another great use for these beans is for dye! Yes, I said dye. The indigo color has been used for centuries to add a beautiful blue or gray color to cotton and other natural fabrics.
