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.
