Green Beans

Pick when young and tender to have less starch.


Choose fresh, well-colored beans that snap easily when bent.

Picking green beans for the best flavor is done when the pods are between 2 and 4 inches long. This will ensure that beans have a delicate sweetness and a fresh taste. Harvesting green beans early will result in sweeter and juicier beans.

In short, the best time to harvest green beans for the best flavor is when they are young and tender. The flowers and seeds will not yet have developed, giving the beans a sweeter flavor. When green beans are older, they will become tougher and taste bitter.


Wash and store in the refrigerator for about a week or freeze or can for longer life.
