Borlotti bean

The cranberry bean, also known as the borlotti bean (singular borlotto in Italian), Roman bean or romano bean (not to be confused with the Italian flat bean, a green bean also called "romano bean"), saluggia bean, or rosecoco bean, is a variety of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) first bred in Colombia as the cargamanto. The bean is a medium to large tan or hazelnut-colored bean splashed or streaked with red, magenta, or black.
