I am very satisfied with this product. The condition of the black beans is also very good, and I am very satisfied with the delivery period and this product. First of all, the price seems reasonable and the quality seems reasonable. Thank you.

Best ever!

Clean, well packaged and healthiest looking black turtle beans I have ever purchased anywhere. Even better is that they are sourced from a few provinces away from where we are. That is as local as we can get. I highly encourage you to try them.

These turtle beans are scrumptious! Our taco nights are 100 times better now! We have also used them in soup and refried them for burritos. Very versatile and a great protein!
