The Tarbais Bean

What is the
Tarbais Bean?

It is the first white bean to obtain a PGI (Protected Geographical Identification) and a Red Label.

The culture is subject to the respect of these two specifications which guarantee in particular the designation Tarbais Haricot by delimiting a precise production zone and by using approved seeds from the local inheritance.
It is therefore a non relocatable production!

Add to that, the lands of Bigorre and the sweetness of its climate and you will obtain tarbes beans with very interesting characteristics and unique taste properties.
