French beans are smaller than common green beans and they also have a softer pod. You can find this type of bean in a variety of colors, including yellow, green and purple. Their delicate, crisp texture and deliciously sweet, grassy flavor, make them very versatile. Blanch and add to salads or serve with roasted meats.

How to Select French Beans
Look for bright and crisp beans. Avoid soft, bruised, or severed beans.

How to Store French Beans
Store in a plastic bag in refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks.

Nutrition Benefits of French Beans
Excellent source of fiber, vitamins B1 and B6, folate, magnesium, and potassium
