Dried Bean Sources - Knowledgebase Question

Question by MTNest95

I can't seem to find seeds for pinto beans, navy beans, or other dry beans anywhere. Can I plant beans plucked from supermarket bins? Why are they not commonly grown in backyard gardens?

Here are some sources for dried beans that do well in the Southwest. Sometimes products for market have "growth and sprout inhibitors" applied, so I wouldn't recommend them, but you can always try. I know a few people who grow dried beans. I think most gardeners don't have a lot of time anymore, so they grow things that taste fresh and sweet. Just an opinion!
