French Beans, otherwise known as legumes, are fast-growing annuals and produces fine crops of low fiber, tender and delicious pods which are long and slender with kidney shaped seeds over a long period. The slightly flattened green beans are coarse and strong-flavoured when mature, but delicious when young.
The very young pods can also be eaten whole including the pod. They need minimal cooking time. Older beans can be podded and boiled or steamed for a few minutes. You can leave beans to mature on the plant and then dry them to make a good addition to hearty soups. Steamed tender French beans make a great addition to warm salads, especillay if served with a creamy cheese. If the tops of the bean plants are in good condition, you can eat these too. A good source of vitamin A, C and E, plus protein and fiber. Never eat beans raw, boil rapidly to retain the flavour and texture.

DIRECTION OF USE
Best soil: French beans will tolerate most soils and conditions; improved with plenty of organic matter.
How to plant: French beans are easy to grow and produce high yields. Sow seeds in pots indoor or they can be sown in situ.. Erect appropriate supports provided with crossed poles or they can be planted up a well-supported wire-netting fence, before sowing or planting out to avoid damaging young plants.
When to harvest: Beans are at their tastiest when pods are full sized and firm and freshly picked, so harvest frequently; this also encourages greater yields. If you want to pod the beans, wait until you can see the bumps of the beans through the pod.
How to harvest: Cut pods with pruners
Care: There is no need to water before flowering, unless plants are wilting. Begin watering generously when flowering starts to encourage pods to set. Avoid applying too much nitrogen-rich fertiliser. Leave the nutrient-rich roots to break down in the soil after harvest.
