About This Food

Description

Green beans, also called string beans or snap beans, are an American classic side dish.

They have a long, slender green pod - all of which is edible - with small seeds inside.

The wax bean is a pale yellow variety of green bean.

Selecting & Storing

Green beans are available year-round, with their peak of freshness between the months of May to October. Choose crisp, bright-colored beans that are free of blemishes. Store in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped in a plastic bag, for up to 5 days.
