Pigeon peas are an important legume crop. The Indian subcontinent, eastern Africa and Central America, are the world's three main pigeon pea-producing regions. The dried peas may be sprouted briefly, then cooked, for a flavour different from the green or dried peas.
Rosecoco Beans are normally found in their dried form. Their deep pink colour skin is flecked with beige and brown. Rosecoco beans are also called borlotti beans, Straip Beans, Saluggia Beans, Roman Beans, and Crab Eye Beans. Rosecoco beans are an ideal ingredient for soups and curries, as well as casseroles.
