Green beans come in a variety of colors, from yellow to purple to even striped! As opposed to mature beans that need to be shelled and cooked, green beans are the immature beans eaten whole with their pods.
Try dehydrating them to make crispy green bean chips - a healthy, delicious snack!
These long, thin bean pods are eaten while young and fresh before they become tough. Two types of green beans are string and snap.
String beans have a fibrous string along the length of the bean that should be removed before eating. Snap beans are usually stringless.
