Need Great Northern White Bean Alternate

I love great northern white beans but am getting tired of them. Is there a similar bean that has soft skin, easy to cook and chew and will easily blend with herbs and spices?

My favorite is black beans. Certainly a bean of a different color but tasty and blends well with others.

Try the big butter beans, or crowder peas if you can find them. Pink purple-hull peas are also delicious. The last two are in a category called "field peas" and taste very meaty.
