The Red Cranberry bean is one of the oldest American bean varieties. It is highly concentrated around the northeastern region of the US. The Abenaki Indians and woodsmen, who inhabited the area now known as Maine, historically used this bean. The Red Cranberry bean is a rare heirloom that was rediscovered by bean collector John Withee after an 11-year search in Steep Falls, Maine. As their name suggests, the mature True Red Cranberry bean is a deep lipstick-red color and looks like a ripe cranberry. The beans are fat and shiny and are mostly used in their dried form.
