String Beans

14 Mar , 2015  

string beans String BeansLatin Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Description: String beans or bush beans are second only to tomatoes in many vegetable lovers’ eyes. They may very well be the easiest and fastest vegetable to grow, which is why they are a perfect crop for the new gardener. The reason they are ready to pick so quickly is because they are eaten before the bean itself is mature. Both the pod and bean seed should be tender when picked. This is in contrast with shell beans in which the seeds must be completely developed before picking.
