Heirloom Calypso Beans hail from the Caribbean and were discovered over 400 years ago. A close hybrid relative of the kidney bean, they have a black and white spotted appearance, prompting the alternative names “Ying Yang” and “Orca” beans. They have smooth taste and texture, and double in size when cooked. Some folks say they taste like Cannellini beans. We think they work well in Mexican dishes, dips, as well as soups!
