By dividing our production into two programs we have extended our supply. Our early crop is grown in rotation with our other tunnel crops, providing increased heat units and allowing early maturing. Our regular field production starts in mid-July which is the traditional bean season.
Green beans offer a source of a variety of vitamins and minerals including iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, magnesium, manganese, folate and riboflavin. Phytochemicals also add to the great health story behind green and yellow beans: flavonoid antioxidants such as lutein, zeaxanthin and ß-carotene in beans have been found to act as protective scavengers against oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and various diseases.
One cup of beans has only 31 calories with a low glycemic index, and offer 9% of the recommended daily intake of fibre.
Green and yellow beans taste very similar, although yellow beans have a slightly milder flavor. Our fresh green and yellow beans are crisp and flavorful when picked.
