French Beans

French beans are related to broad beans and a member of the Legume family. This name encompasses a range of green beans, including the snap bean and bobby bean. Their long green fleshy pods are at their best before they become stringy. They may be cooked whole, or chopped.

French beans are classed nutritionally as a green vegetable rather than as beans because they share the same characteristics as greens. They are a good source of fibre, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and folic acid.
