Tepary beans and peanuts?
Thinking about growing peanuts and tepary beans next summer. Wondering if either are worth it in limited amount of space? I understand both do well in my hot climate. I've usually stuck with pole beans due to limited area. I'd really like to try peanuts in the garden and teparies in my unimproved area. However, I have no idea what yield will be and don't know if either will be worth the space.
I could also grow pole cowpeas or yardlongs on a trellis, perhaps with heat tolerant squash or melons underneath, instead.
What is the DTM on each?
What variety of peanuts would you recommend for AZ?
The area that I would put the teparies is flood irrigated every two weeks during hot months, which I understand is how teparies are usually grown.
Do I need to till for teparies?
What kind of yield will peanuts and teparies give? I have a nice loose area to give peanuts but the spot for teparies is hard clay.
