French beans are harvested anywhere from three to four inches in length, when their texture and flavor is at its peak. French beans have a thin, cylindrical shape with plump indentations along their contour, outlining the peas inside, which are shelled tightly within the bean flesh. The peas, which are essentially the bean's seeds, are a vibrant lime green in color, semi starchy in texture with a mild taste of the beans sweet and grassy flavors. Packed full of green goodness, French beans offer up a multitude of nutritional benefits. As well as being low in calories and containing no saturated fat, they are a fantastic source of vital nutrients, particularly vitamins C and A, and minerals including iron, calcium and magnesium.
