Wonderfully delicate flavor, even when picked very young. These gourmet beans are perfect steamed or sauteed.
These delicate 'French Filet' beans are no longer a luxury item found only in gourmet restaurants. Enjoy them fresh from your garden all summer long. Filet (or as the French say, haricot verts) are slender beans; pencil-thin at only ¼" in diameter and 4" long, and so tender. Steam or sauté for just a minute and enjoy. Easy and delicious.
Variety InfoSlender ¼" diameter, 4"¼ long, green pods with white seeds.
Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.
RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
