Straight from Mexico around the 16th century, the ‘Haricot maïs’ beans become very valuable in the eyes of farmers who found they were easy to grow and kept well, meaning you could eat off it for a long period of time.

This ‘Haricot maïs’ bean is a pole bean variety. The corn plant gives it an ideal habitat acting as a natural pole and providing it with shade. The fruit of this association is a large, slightly sweet bean with a texture that is not very floury and a subtle taste. You can find it in many local dishes, in particular the famous garbure stew. Today the ‘Haricot Maïs du Béarn’ bean is a registered trademark.
