Green Beans
Scientific Name: Phaseolus vulgaris
Country of Origin: Central/South America

Green beans, also known as pod beans, are categorized into two types: bush beans and pole beans. Bush beans grow in a bush that, if you stop harvesting, will stop producing. Pole beans, on the other hand, grow on a trellis and will continue to produce until the first frost. Green beans can be eaten raw, though they are more commonly steamed before serving.
