Calypso Bean - Seeds


Latin name: Phaseolus vulgaris

The Calypso bean produces beautiful, dark green flattened pods. The beans themselves are exceptionally delicious fresh and an excellent candidate for canning and freezing. If you are patient enough, you can wait for them to fully mature and eat them as dried beans. The unusual bi-coloured seeds are white with black spots, earning them the alternate names of the "Orca" or "Ying Yang" bean. The Calypso bean is a well loved variety by fans of dried beans for its rich and creamy texture and unique appearance. When cooked, dried beans double in size and retain their distinctive coloring.
