Green Beans

also knows as 'Snap Beans' and 'String Beans'

vegetable

Growing:

Plant after last frost. Check packaging of seeds, some bean plants are "bush beans" and some are "pole beans."

Bush Beans: Plant seeds 1 inch deep in rows about 1½ feet apart; thin to 6 inches. Harvest when pods are young but firm.

Pole Beans: Plant 3 or 4 seeds in a "hill" with a stake in the center. Space hills about 3 feet apart. Beans will grow up stake and may need to be tied as they get taller. Alternatively, plant along a fence or a trellis. Harvest when pods are crisp and firm, still young but with a bulge to them. Plant will continue to produce, so be gentle as you harvest.

Selecting & Storing:

Pods should be crisp and free of blemishes and bright green. Store beans in an open bag in the refrigerator for up to 6 days.

Basic Preparation:

Wash beans under cold water and snip ends. Cut or leave whole, cover with water in a pan and boil until tender, but not soft.
