Did you know?

Green beans, also called string beans, once featured a tough strand of “string” running along each and every pod. Most modern varieties have been bred to lack the string entirely. Calvin Keeney is called the “father of the stringless bean” for growing this popular variety all the way back in 1894. All we know is we love the protein and fiber we get from green beans – no strings attached!
