Papa de Rola Bean

Regular price $ 7.25

1 Lb Bag - Sold Out

Mild with a creamy interior, this rare heirloom is ready to be put to work in your favorite soup or chowder. 

This eye-catching bean is thought to be bred in Portugal; we grow them here in the USA. They also go by the name of Dove's Breast. Their beautiful markings resemble Snowcap Beans, but the beans themselves are small and round. 

They are mild in flavor and will soak up any flavors you throw at them.
