Jacob's Cattle bean, also called a Trout bean or an Appaloosa bean, is a Prince Edward Island heirloom. Legend has it that it was a gift from Maine's Passamaquoddy Indians to Joseph Clark, the first white child born in Lubec, Maine. It is a plump, white and red speckled, kidney-shaped bean with vivid maroon splashes. It is full-flavored, holds its shape under long cooking, and stands up well to plenty of seasoning. The bean has a rich aroma. It is a little tannic on the tongue and tastes almost like a green bean with a slightly fruity aftertaste.
