200 gram Beans--- Only $1.00 each ---

Green beans used to have a very strong fibrous thread along the seams, and were thus referred to as string beans, a term mostly used by old-timers. I guess I’m an old-timer, as I still remember having to help my mother string beans as a child. Thankfully, modern beans are stringless.

In 1896,Calvin Keeney from New York developed the first stringless green bean. Of course, it took many years to breed this new trait into all the other varieties. Breeders still have to be careful not to let strings creep back into the varieties they’re developing.

So enjoy our Beans fresh and free to your door.

Special starts Monday 22nd and finishes Friday 26th.
