Do you think they are refering to the great taste as a green bean, dry bean, or both?I found this comment by Mike Reeske interesting (a farmer working with UC Davis on the UC Rio Zape bean):
He also responded to someone asking if Anazapi (accidental cross between Anasazi and Rio Zape) was suitable to grow in their particular climate. He said that Rio Zape was from the mountainous foothills of Northern Mexico, and that Anazapi needs 90-100 days of warm summer weather to bring it to harvest. I wonder if that is why Rio Zape hasn't produced well for Northern Network Bean growers?
But it was interesting (to me) to see what they went through to get the Matterhorn/Rio Zape cross to be just as delicious as the original Rio Zape.
