Beans are one of the longest-cultivated plants
It goes without saying (but not here) that the first beans were organically grown. The term “organic” is a recent concept. Before WWII the word was not so popular. It wasn’t until a deadly war that the world began to develop chemical fertilizers to increase the populations 4 fold. Before then all crops were “organic”.
Eve grew “organic” beans!? I was told that Adam and Eve actually had their encounter with a yard long pole bean, not a snake after they eat the wrong/right mushroom. That’s hard to verify so lets not elaborate and get on to something verifiable. Broad beans, in their wild state, the size of a small fingernail, were gathered in Afghanistan and the Himalayan foothills. This is verifiable in a scholarly abstract Agricultural Origins: Centers and Noncenter by Chester F. Gorman. (incredible article) But not until the second millennium BC did cultivated, large-seeded broad beans appear in Europe.
The broad bean is said to have been brought to Britain by the Romans 2000 years ago. It was also an important crop sown by monks during the Middle Ages. Organic beans were an important source of protein throughout Old and New World history, and still are today. I can verify that because I live and work in Central America, Costa Rica the black bean capital of the world. Everybody here likes Gillo Pinto (beans & rice) for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert. The desert comes with cream on top so don’t scrunch your nose at the idea.
The oldest-known domesticated beans (obviously they were organic beans) in the Americas were found in Guitarrero Cave, an archaeological site in Peru, and dated to around the second millennium BC. Most of the varieties popular today come originally from the Americas. This was verified by Europeans when Columbus’s crew found 5 types growing in fields, domesticated by pre-Columbian peoples. One especially famous use of beans by pre-Columbian people is the “Three Sisters” method of companion plant cultivation.
