  • About

The name mongetes or mojetes, now meaning haricot bean, was once used for black-eyed (Vigna) beans, a rather coarse and mealy cowpea originating in Africa and, along with a type of broad bean, known in the Mediterranean ages before haricot beans arrived.

Later, the term came to mean beans of the coco (borlotti) or Soissons type– Soissons are large flat beans, like small butter beans, but you can also use top quality haricots. Spanish are good.
