The colour can lean towards gold or beige.
Peruano Beans have a creamy texture when cooked, and will even cook down into a purée, if simmered long enough.
Peruano Beans are one of the top-selling beans in Mexico City, as of 2005.
Some English sources say this is the same bean as Mayocaba (or Maicoba), Azufrado Beans and Canary (Canario) Beans, but Mexican sources distinguish all these from Peruano beans.
A variety called “Peruano Bola” is rounder (more “ball-shaped”,) thus the “bola” in its name.
Peruano Beans are native to Mexico, despite the name.
