Lina Cisco's Bird Egg Bean This tan and maroon speckled bean was brought to Missouri by covered wagon in the 1880s by the grandmother of Lina Cisco - one of the six original members of Seed Savers Exchange. An unbelievably aromatic and plump bean, its skin splits open to reveal a creamy, almost potato-like texture. Lina Cisco's Bird Egg bean is equally delicious boiled, seasoned and topped with cornbread as it is roasted, salted and served as an appetizer. The maroon and tan markings are muted when cooked.
