Rattlesnake Beans (Heirloom)
Rattlesnake Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) are related to the Pinto Bean. The name is derived from the bean pods, which grow in a coiled shape resembling a snake. Rattlesnake beans are small, about 3/8 inch long, with a more assertive flavor than their pinto relatives. The beans are light brown with mahogany or dark brown speckles.
