GREEN BEANS: MIXED HEIRLOOM (1 LB)
One pound of mixed heirloom green snap beans grown right here on our farm. The beans you receive may be purple, yellow, green, or mottled and they may be standard snap beans or wide Roma beans, but they're ALL delicious! Cook them up together for a blend that's sure to please everyone! (Note: Sadly, the purple beans will lose their color and turn green when cooked. HOWEVER, kids really enjoy watching the beans "magically" transform before their eyes!)
"Heirloom" vegetables are types that were once popular but were rejected by mass agriculture due to their color, production rate, and/or imperfect appearance. Over the past decade farmers and scientists have recognized the need to bring genetic diversity back into our food supply, and heirloom vegetables began making a well-deserved resurgence. These beans are often misshapen, blemished and mottled looking, and can more challenging to grow, but the taste is so worth it!
While not officially certified organic, these beans have been grown using organic and naturally, sustainably grown standards. Rest assured that they'll be a safe and wholesome addition to your family's diet!
