"Pinquito beans are an essential component of the traditional Santa Maria Style Barbecue menu. Pinquito beans are a cross between a pink bean and a small white bean. How they came to be grown in the Santa Maria Valley remains a mystery. Some say the beans were given as a gift by a Mexican vaquero to one of the early Swiss-Italian settlers. Others contend that a lady brought several plants with her when she migrated to the area from Europe. Pinquito Beans grow well in the fertile soil and mild climate of the Santa Maria Valley, which is the only place where Pinquito beans are grown commercially.”

And to define the Santa Maria BBQ, “Santa Maria Style Barbecue originated in the mid 1800s when local ranchers would host Spanish-style feasts each spring for their vaquero. They barbecued meat over earthen pits filled with hot coals of local red oak. The meal would be served with pinquitos, small pink beans that are considered indigenous to the Santa Maria Valley."

    Lived in CA 15 years and worked the Santa Maria area for years, can't find these in the Midwest. Finally ordered on line. remember the area well from Oxnard to Salinas, to San Jose. Best overall cost from Hearne if you have to ship
    Prompt shipping thanks

  5. Great Beans

    Posted by Patrick on 22nd Jun 2020

    These are great beans and L. A. Hearne Co. shipping was fast, I only wish the price of shipping could be reduced. $20.00 for shipping for 10 lbs. of beans seems excessive.

  6. Best beans

    Posted by Stan on 14th Jan 2018

    Hard to find this bean if you don't live in the Santa Maria area. The best bean for BBQs and at a reasonable price.

  7. Cali Cow Peas

    Posted by Greg Deeter on 14th Nov 2016

    Being born and raised in California I do remember these that went along with Tri-Top BBQ. It's a cross between a pink and a white. Having grown cowpeas in Texas now for decades (only heirlooms) I can say that these have a wonderful and unique taste and texture. Firm like a soybean and a raw natural taste. They hold up well to seasoning and make a darn fine chili with local grass fed beef. The price here from King was great and the delivery was fast with excellent packaging. Would order again.

  8. Great company

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Nov 2015

    I will recommend them to any and or everyone.

    Keep up the great job.

    I finally can get these beans in Prunedale. I grew up in Santa Maria & could only get them there. It's nice to order online & pickup at the store in Prunedale.
