Green beans are the unripe, young fruit, and protective pods. Our packs have over 50 seeds and 1500 to 2000 a pound. Did someone say companion planting or canning? If you're only going to grow a few things, then grow green beans! Careful to not let them get to big! Pick a few times per week; these will grow well next to almost any vining crop and the all-time American favorite Three Sisters companion planting!
