Green Beans

Green Beans

Also known as string beans or snap beans for the visual and aural sensations they provide, green beans are in reality immature kidney beans that have been picked before the pods become inedible. Quality green beans should split with ease and will last in the refrigerator for approximately 10 days. The beans are a great source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, folate, and iron.
