Rio Zape Beans were unearthed in the ruins of the Anasazi cliff–dwelling people in the American southwest, collected from the Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico in 1935. This bean is similar in size and shape to the popular pinto bean and is purple with dark burgundy slashes. The Rio Zape, also known as the Hopi String Bean, has a creamy texture and a complex flavor with a hint of chocolate.
