The Rattlesnake bean is also known as “Preacher Bean.”
The distinctive markings on the seed of this bean earned it the name “Rattlesnake.”
Legendary Southwestern favorite, extremely water efficient, eats drought for lunch. Also known in the Southeast for its tolerance to high humidity and wet ground.
There is a claim out there that, when planted in mid-summer, desert monsoon rain alone is enough to produce a survival crop from the Rattlesnake
We’ve actually tested this claim. We did have to provide a comparatively small amount of water to get them above ground and alive for a couple weeks to get to the rains. After that, we harvested until fall with no additional water.
Feed and water yours nicely, and yields will only increase. Careful not to overwater these beans.
