Italian Jumbo Bean

Italian Jumbo beans are often referred to as Italian-style green beans in recipes.  The dark green, extra-long, flattened pods have a rich flavor and can be used interchangeably in recipes calling for green beans. Best to harvest at 6”-7” but even at 10” the pods are stringless.  Excellent for freezing, these bush type beans, are also great in side dishes.  Try blanching and then sautéing beans in a little olive and garlic. Or stew beans together with shallots, garlic, fresh tomatoes and tomato puree for a quick and tasty side dish.
