This picture reminds me of something I forgot to mention about my network 'Monachine' beans that I just sent off. Those beans did not grow quite as good as the others for some reason, they still did okay but not the perfect sepcimens I aim for. I did pick out and send the very best of the bunch to you though, and strangely, in my soil the beans had more brown colouring on them and weren't quite as speckled with white. I don't think they are crossed or anything, since the beans in the pods were speckled with white BUT some were also more pure brown. Oddly, the best formed beans were the brown to browner ones. The more white speckled ones didn't do as well. Because I sent the best of what I had, many in there will be brown. Maybe you've seen this before, I'm not sure so I wanted to give you a heads up.Blue Jay's 2022 Bean Show - Day 21

Of course it's name would suggest a South American origin. I obtained the bean in 2011 from Any Hawk's Simply Beans where she grew her gardens in Calhan, Colorado. Amy Hawk has retired from selling beans so she is no longer a source for this bean. I harvested a few nice beans to plant again next year but this years grow out was so small it almost didn't exist.
