Always look for the youngest, brightest and freshest looking beans that have crisp pods. Leave the ones that are wizened or discolored. For French Beans the optimum temperature 6-8 at relative humidity of 90-95%.


Keep fresh beans in perforated plastic bags in the refrigerator crisper; edible pod beans will stay fresh for 3 to 5 days, shell beans for 2 or 3 days. Refrigerate shelled beans in a plastic bag and use them within a day or two.


Cook and eat as soon as you can to preserve texture, flavor and goodness. Keep in a cool, dry place. All beans, if young and tender, can be frozen.
