French Filet Beans, Haricot Vert

Our favorite French Filet beans are in! Although it has been a long wait this season due to several unsuccessful plantings, we are finally picking buckets of the most tender "green bean" you have ever eaten. These are Masai French Filet beans, or as the French call them Haricot Vert.

Although picking these slender beans is tedious, back-breaking work, the labor is well worth the effort

 an average length of 5-7" and pencil thin

These beans are such the favorite of ours...some beans never make it to the bucket, straight from plant to mouth
