fast facts about beans
- Bean is the name used for the seeds of certain plants. Most of these plants are known as legumes.
- Edible legumes include lentils, soybeans, fava beans, lima beans, black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, and peas.
- Beans are one of the four important sources of protein. The other three are meats, nuts, and dairy products.
Some American Indian tribes grew maize, beans, and squash together, in a system that originated in Mexico.
The corn was not planted in rows as it is today, but in a checkerboard fashion across a field, in separate patches of one to four stalks each.
Beans would then be planted around the base of the developing corn stalks, and would vine their way up as the stalks grew.
Conveniently, the cornstalks served as a trellis for the beans, and the beans provided nitrogen for the corn.
Squash was then planted in the spaces between the corn patches.
The corn sheltered the squash from the sun, while the squash plants discouraged animals from attacking the corn and beans, because their coarse, hairy vines and broad, stiff leaves are difficult for deer and smaller animals to navigate.
