In the Polizzi Generosa valley grows the Badda bean and takes its name from the characteristic ball shape (Badda in Sicilian dialect). There are two ecotypes, similar in shape and organoleptic characteristics but with different colors: the badda white bean, ivory colored with pink / orange spots; black badda bean, ivory colored with dark purple / black spots. Badda is a savory bean with hints of chestnut and almonds. During the cooking, it becomes creamy and does not flake.
