Subject: Re: green/string beans
I and my two-year-old call them green beans, but my dad in Texas calls them
string beans. My in-laws in Central Georgia call them snap beans. Then
there is the confusion between pole beans (the big tough beans best boiled
for a while with some streak of lean) and green beans (the kind that you
can find in a can).
My grandmother's secret recipe called for green beans made out of green
pinto beans. They're kind of furry, and the bean inside is kind of purple.
You'll need to grow them on poles.
O Kentucky Wonder! Bush beans but not Bush's beans.
