Mexican Jumping Beans

 

WARNING: THESE ARE NOT FOOD FOR PEOPLE OR ANIMALS

            • One plastic box with 5 live jumping beans
            • Each bean is picked by hand

 

These beans are imported directly from Mexico where they grow wild on a native shrub found in the desert. The bean is really a seed capsule containing a small moth larva. Each order is for one box of 5 beans and will arrive in a small plastic box. 

 The Mexican jumping bean comes from the mountains in the states of Sonora, Sinaloa, and Chihuahua. Álamos, Sonora, calls itself the "Jumping Bean Capital of the World". They can be found in an area approximately 30 by 100 miles where the Sebastiana pavoniana host tree grows. During the spring, moths emerge from last year's beans and deposit their eggs on the flower of the host tree.
