    yellow kidney beans

    Hi,

    I know what "kidney beans" are. They are red in colour. We have the similar beans but they are yellow in colour. Can I call them "yellow kidney beans"? I'll upload the pictures if you are not sure what I am talking about. Let me know, please.

    Of course you can call them yellow kidney beans. (Call them whatever you like.)

    Re: yellow kidney beans

    Say:

    We have similar beans, but they are yellow.

    (It is usually not necessary to say something like "red in color".)

    Re: yellow kidney beans

    When you say "yellow" kidney beans, are you by any chance referring to Cannellini beans?

    I think I have a can of those beans. (But the can just says "beans" I think.)

    Re: yellow kidney beans

    I can't imagine a can that just says "beans"! How on earth would you know what you were buying? That's like buying a "meat pie" - no way! If you can't tell me what meat is in it, I'm not touching it with a bargepole. (Well, to be fair, I wouldn't touch any meat with a bargepole but you get the drift.)

    Hey, I'm depending on my memory. (I think the can does have a picture on the label.)

    The suspense of waiting for untaught to come back to us with a photo is killing me!

    Re: yellow kidney beans

    Before uploading a picture, I was searching on Google.

    I found two words "black-eyed bean/pea" and "cowpea". I think it's called "black-eyed bean/pea".
