Dikotylon's "Gigantes Feneou" are produced by local farmers in Feneos, a high mountain valley nestled between the peaks of Mt. Helmos and Mt. Zyria at an elevation of 2,000 feet, in the northern Peloponnese. The area is renowned for its bean cultivation. Gigantes Feneou retain their unique characteristics through cultivation techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation. They are entirely hand farmed and hand processed.  The exclusive selection of seeds, by the farmers themselves, for sowing the following year preserves the purity of these unique beans. 

  • Ingredients: 100% Gigantes beans of Feneos

  • No preservatives, no pesticides

  • Net weight: 500g

Gigantes are a versatile bean with a mild, meaty flavor that can used in any recipe that calls for white beans, although note that their larger size may require more cooking time. Below are some of my favorite recipes using gigantes.

Giant flavor!

I've purchased these beans elsewhere, and the quality of these is much superior! They have a beautiful, creamy texture and delicious flavor.

Gigandes and paximadia.

I love these beans. They are so satisfing like small potatoes but loaded with protein and fiber. They are delicious and remind me when my Uncle Stefanos from Astoria use to bake them for me when I would visit.--- As for the paximadia from Crete,, they are so good I cant stop eating them. They are superhealthy grains made with barley and ancient zea flour. My microbiome cant thank you enough.

The best addition to my menu

I love Gigantes, these are wonderful addition to my menu. I make the Gigantes with grape molasses and herbs for an easy lunch (so far my favorite way to prepare them). Since I do have to order them (can not buy locally) this is the best price and great quality.
