The Instacart guide to French green beans
About French green beans
When shopping for green beans in the market, you'll find two options—green beans and French green beans, which are also called haricots verts in French. You may notice the two green beans don't look exactly alike. So, what is the difference between regular green beans and French green beans? French green beans are skinnier than traditional green beans, and they are usually more tender and flavorful. French green beans are picked earlier, so they are younger, giving them their signature flavor. If they were picked around the same time regular green beans are, you would notice a flavor difference.
In France, all green beans are called haricots verts. There are even skinnier versions called haricots verts filets extra-fins. If you order green beans in a restaurant, you are likely getting regular green beans unless the menu denotes haricots verts or French green beans. Both green beans and haricots verts share the same scientific name, Phaseolus Vulgaris.
Preparing French green beans is simple. You should wash the beans in cold water before cutting and cooking. Trim both ends, but keep the beans whole. Keeping them whole will help retain their crispiness and sweetness.
