Though it may lack an evocative name, this Red Mexican-type bean is not to be overlooked. Bred by USDA breeders in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, NW 63 combines early maturity, high yields, short plants and resistance to Fusarium root rot (along with resistance to Curly Top virus and some strains of Bean Common Mosaic virus).
These beans grow on compact, bush-habit plants, that have noticeable red pigment on their stems. Red Mexican beans are distinct from both kidney beans and adzuki beans, and are classically cooked up as "frijoles de la olla" or beans in a pot.
Packet size: 60 seeds DTM: 90 days
