More About Appaloosa Beans

Getting its name from its distinctive speckled markings, the Appaloosa Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is a hybrid legume with markings that resemble those of Appaloosa ponies. These elegant, elongated beans present with a firm texture and mild flavor. Their color markings fade slightly when cooked but the color contrast remains. Toss them into stews, casseroles, chilis, refried beans, salads, and dishes that normally call for pinto or kidney beans.

As members of the legume family, they boast a high nutrient density with low-maintenance production and storage. They're packed with protein, essential minerals and fiber, and have low levels of fat.

It's believed that Appaloosa Beans originated in Peru, and were spread as a result of trade throughout South and Central America. Then in the 15th century, they were introduced to Europe by Spanish explorers. Because these beans are a source of high-quality protein and nutrition yet are inexpensive, they've become diet staples in various cultures and are now produced throughout North America, Asia, and Europe.
