The History of Organic Black Turtle Beans

Organic Black Turtle Beans date back to ancient Mesoamerica, where they were a staple in the diets of Aztecs and Mayans. These small, shiny beans are named for their resemblance to turtle shells and have been cultivated for over 7,000 years. With their high protein and fibre content, they were highly valued for their nutritional benefits. Over time, they spread to other parts of the world, becoming a key ingredient in Latin American and Caribbean cuisines. Today, their heritage as a versatile, nutritious food continues to be celebrated, with a growing demand for organic and sustainably sourced varieties.
