Put in a perforated plastic bag and store in crisper. Do not wash until just prior to use (moisture causes rusting on the beans). Fresh beans last for 4 days to a week.
Preparation Tip: Remove the top (stem end) of the bean. To optimize their sweet flavor, cut the beans as little as possible. Cook just until tender and bright green.
Did you know... They used to be called string beans because of the string that ran along the outer side of the pod, but by 1894 botanists had successfully removed the string through breeding experiments.

About the vendor
Covilli Brand Organics
Covilli Brand Organics' roots are over twenty years old and are firmly intertwined with Circle Produce Co., Inc. Circle Produce is a small family owned operation that began as a grower/shipper of quality, conventional mixed vegetables. With organically certifiable land available to Circle Produce in Baja California and Sonora Mexico, their family ventured into the challenging sector of organic farming. They believed in the concept of incorporating an organic product line that mirrored their conventional program.
In 1996 their family began growing organically for another shipper and shortly thereafter, Covilli BrandOrganics Inc., was established as the marketing arm for the organic line of mixed vegetables and melons.
