Orca bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)


The Orca Bean is a dwarf variety known to have existed in the Caribbean region around 400 years ago. It gets its name from its unique black and white pattern quite similar to that of the killer whale (Orcinus orca). It is harvested once the pods are completely dry, and will find their place in your stews or in a corner of your house for the pleasure of the eyes!

To be consumed neat.
