Kidney Beans

About the product: 

Kidney beans are a type of legume that comes in two varieties: light red and dark red. They are named for their red colour and form. Both types are harder than most other beans, although the light-colored varieties have a softer feel than their darker counterparts.

Kidney beans are a sort of “common bean” having black beans, pinto beans, and navy beans as an ancestor. This ancestral bean was initially discovered in Peru by European explorers, who helped spread common beans over the world. Kidney beans are still widely consumed throughout South and Central America, as well as the Caribbean.
