Tepary Bean (Phaseolus Acutifolius)
A type of haricot bean grown in Mexico, where there is evidence that it's been cultivated for over 5,000 years. They have been introduced to West Africa, where they are popular.
The beans are dried, and then cooked as haricot beans - but need a longer cooking time.
