A tiny bean deeply connected to the state of California's own multicultural heritage, this "little pink" bean is the traditional Santa Maria BBQ bean. Local lore says that this heirloom bean was a staple during the mission era, moving its way up the California coast during the 1800's as it was cultivated in the mission gardens. It's super sweet, miniature, creamy and keeps its shape and form. Your west coast barbecue must-have. Try it alongside carnitas or our pork chops.
