A type of bean called Judion for its large size. Cultivated in La Granja de San Ildefonso (Segovia), it is believed to have been brought from the Americas and planted in the fertile farmlands of Segovia in the early XVI century, by queen Isabel Farnesio wife of King Felipe V. Our butter bean today is picked fresh, delicately cooked and packed in natural brine to keep its texture all year around.
