Black Calypso sounds Jamaican, Mon – but we are told these beautifully colored beans originated in Africa. Beautiful bean also called Ying Yang and Orca bean because of the stark contrast of black and white that flows along the bean’s length. About 3/8 inch long with a silky smooth texture and mild flavor, this bean is sure to look great on any plate!
Calypso Beans are a delicious potato-like flavor addition to salads, soups, casseroles, and stews. Cooked Calypsos combined with cooked rice make a wonderful addition to vegetables.
