Buying Tips

When buying appaloosas, as with all other dried beans, look for uniform, bright-looking skins.


Appaloosas are related to pinto beans. Sometimes these beans are called Red Appaloosa; however, other bean varieties have also been known to borrow the same title, like the New Mexican Appaloosa, which is actually a different variety of bean.
