Tanzania kidney bean or maharagwe Figo in Swahili is a variation of the field bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) with a kidney shape.  Even the color is that of the organ in that it is reddish or brownish. Most farmers in Tanzania grow the red kidney bean variety. It features in most spicy meals including the country’s coastal staples of rice, with the best-known menu being wali na maharagwe or rice with beans. Like the common bean, this variety originated in Central America. It came into Tanzania by way of the United States about 300 years to date.

In nutritional terms, the kidney bean is rich in protein at 48 percent of the daily requirements. The amount of potassium for diuretic or toxin removal functions is 40 percent per serving.  The carbohydrates level is 60 grams or 20 percent of the daily needs, which makes this legume a natural substitute to cereal in energy intake. The crop has digestion-promoting dietary fiber equal to the exact daily requirement of 100 percent. The highest mineral content is that of iron, which at 45 percent of the daily requirements sharpens brain function. Magnesium follows at 35 percent while calcium is 14 percent. The highest vitamin concentration is that of B-6, which at 20 percent per serving helps in cell metabolism. Vitamin C has a proportion of 7 percent worth of the daily requirements.

We source Tanzania kidney beans in the northern region around Kilimanjaro and Mwanza areas. Our family growers maintain a land extent of no more than 0.5 hectares, which makes it very easy to manage. They use farmyard manure for soil enrichment and eradicate pests via traditional means rather than applying chemical sprays.

Our harvesting method of Tanzania kidney beans is manual and meticulous. We begin on the 95th day after planting for the early maturing varieties or 20 days after that for the late setting types. We wait for the leaves and stalks to turn straw-colored. Our trained workers then lift off the entire plant so that it goes on to hang bottom side up to dry before threshing. They also opt to pick one dried pod at a time. Either way, threshing, and winnowing closely follow the picking date. Winnowing involves the removal of specks and debris so that the now free seeds can be ready for packing.

We pack Tanzania kidney beans in 15-pound produce boxes when they are scorched. Our other boxes come with capacities of between 12 and 14 kilograms. Our box types range from cartons to plastic crates to custom baskets. We stick produce labels on the side of the box inclusive of the cultivar’s name, the packing date, the net weight and the country of origin.

We store Tanzania kidney beans at the temperature range of above 7 degrees Celsius and less than 13 degrees Celsius. We keep the produce dry, with a moisture content of less than 14 percent.  We also transport the produce in this designate temperature range via our custom vehicles that are fitted with hydro-cooling equipment. The cargo leaves the departure lounge in Dar-es-Salaam on the same day it reaches there, which means you can obtain it within 48 hours’ of dispatch.

We are therefore your one-stop-source of the protein-rich Tanzania kidney beans right from this East African nation. You will always get a supply that has less than 0.01 percent of the recommended minimum residual levels. This is because our sources strictly follow Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) protocols when farming the crop, such as sparing use of toxic chemicals. We also reserve your exact tonnage request as our farmers always grow a surplus for selling both locally and abroad. You also get our word for very appealing prices that we wrap around your budget.
