Collection: Fresh Eating or Dry Beans
Beans are an incredibly versatile and nutritious food, and there are many different varieties to choose from. Bean seeds are typically small and round, and they come in a variety of colors, including black, white, brown, and red.
The taste of beans can vary depending on the type, but they are generally somewhat nutty and earthy. Beans are a good source of protein, fiber, and minerals, and they can be used in a variety of dishes, from soups and stews to salads and sides. Some popular varieties of beans include black beans, kidney beans, lentils, and peas.
Beans are a staple summer veggie to grow. Plant varieties to eat fresh–either bush or pole beans are easy to grow and you either can or freeze for enjoying later. Want to plant it and harvest for later use, try some dry bean varieties like Lima beans or Black Turtle beans.
