Storage

As always, fresh produce is most delicious and nutritious when consumed as close to the harvest date as possible.

Fresh beans are amazingly sweet and snappy. Super sweet and crisp when enjoyed close to harvest. Store in cold section of fridge, closely wrapped.

Beans freeze beautifully. check out /freezing
