According to the following heirloom bean site, the Jacob's Cattle beans are a larger variety than the Anasazi (also called New Mexico Cave Bean, Aztec Cave Bean) although some vendors sell the JL beans as if they were also Anasazi. If you follow the "Eat Right For Your Type" diets, the difference can be very important.
