A favorite among green bean lovers everywhere, Blue Lake Green Beans are famous for their wonderful, “beany” flavor and smooth, string-less texture. They are known for retaining that flavor and texture when they are canned or frozen. Lehne Farms LLC (Roseburg) grows them using organic practices; early August is usually the best time for green beans.

Green beans are a good source of carbohydrates, weighing in at around 10 grams in a cup of simply cooked beans. These carbs come in a healthy package that includes high percentages of your daily value of vitamins A, C, and K, folate, and manganese.

Store unwashed fresh beans in a reusable container or plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper. Whole beans stored this way should keep for about seven days. You can also freeze your fresh green beans – without blanching! Just trim the ends off, chop into desired sizes, wash them and freeze!
