Beans and Peas

Superior. Distinct. Special.

French Beans

French beans, also known as ‘haricots verts’, are similar to green beans but have smaller, slimmer pods. In recent years, French beans have gone from being a specialty product found in higher-end restaurants to a beloved, nutritious and delicious veggie for everyday dining at home. Each of our crisp, sweet beans is delicately hand-harvested from our farms in Guatemala, washed, and ready to eat.

TIPS FOR SELECTION

Look for beans that are a deep emerald green color, crisp to the touch and that have smooth skin without any “corrugations”.

HOW TO STORE

French beans can be stored in a plastic bag and refrigerated for several days.

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Good Source of Fiber, Vitamins C, K, B2 and B6

HOW TO COOK

Green beans can be blanched steamed, or sautéed in a bit of olive oil. Avoid boiling French beans, as they will lose much of their nutrients. Some of our packaging you can even microwave right in the bag!
