Calypso - Orca - Yin Yang Bean Seeds
Price for Package of 10 seeds.
Beautiful and rare beans! We are so tickled to offer these popular beans, which look just like a yin-yang symbol, even down to the little dot! Calypso Beans are a variety of kidney bean. They grow on a bush-type bean plant that grows up to 15 inches (38 cm) tall. There will be 4 to 5 beans per pod. 70 to 90 days from seed for harvest. The beans are small, 3/8 inch (1 cm) long, but plump.
When young, the pods can be harvested as a green bean. But when full-grown, they are used as a bean for drying.
Calypso Beans double in size when cooked, and have a smooth texture: 1 cup dried beans = 2 cups cooked beans.
Mild flavor and almost potato-like texture make this Caribbean bean adaptable to different flavors.
Widely adapted to both cool, short summers.
