Cranberry Beans are related to the Kidney Bean. Cranberry Beans are like Pinto Beans but reversed in color with pink skin and maroon mottling. They are somewhat plumper than the Pinto and are about 1/2 inch long. Cranberry Beans have a sweet, mild flavor. They are also sometimes referred to as borlotto, crab eye, roman, romano, rosecoco or saluggia beans.
