RAINBOW SNAP BEANS

A mix of heirloom snap bean varieties including Dragon's Tongue, Red Swan, Ice Bean, Roma, Beurre De Rocquencourt, and Purple Dove.

Snap beans can be eaten raw or cooked.  Raw will preserve the colours, or the "magic" coloured beans will turn green or yellow when perfectly cooked!

FAVA BEANS

Also known as broad beans, fava beans are large, flat beans with a fresh & nutty flavour.  You will get a mix of different heirloom varieties.

Fava beans can be eaten raw or cooked.

I always leave the seed coats on my favas, but if you prefer to remove them before eating:

  • Remove beans from pods

  • Lightly steam beans for about 1 minute

  • Pop the beans out of the seat coats

RUNNER BEANS

Eat and use your heirloom runner beans in the same ways you would use snap beans.
