Quick Overview

Many recipes call for French beans to be cooked whole, which helps retain their flavour (chopped veg give up their goodness to the water), so if you’re looking for a versatile green bean that packs a nutritional punch, the French bean’s just the job.

Cooking

Top and tail them and blanch in boiling salted water for a couple of minutes. They need to have a squeak when you bite into them. Try tossing them with shredded slow cooked tomatoes, diced olives and fresh basil.

Storage

Keeps for up to a week in the bottom of the fridge.

Varieties/season

The first flush comes from our growers in Spain, then our farm in the Vendée in June and home grown in August and September. They like to grow in hot and humid climates so can be a challenge to grow in the UK - Richard Rowan, one of the South Devon Organic Producers co-operative, grows ours.
