Arizona farmer Terry Button grew up eating beans in New England.
"I never sit down to eat a little portion of beans," he said, grinning. "I eat a big bowl of beans."
They were his favorite food — baked beans, great northern beans, navy beans, lima beans mixed with corn in succotash.
"But we didn't have tepary beans," Button said. "Never saw a tepary bean until I got here, and they became my favorite bean."
