Bean storage tips


Succulent, fresh-picked green or yellow wax beans are big on taste and vitamins. Find them at Dentz Orchards and Berry Farm today.

Storage

  • After purchasing your green or yellow beans, store them on the kitchen counter with the stems on.
  • Once you remove the stems, keep them in a moisture-proof, airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Beans will toughen over time even when stored properly, so use within a couple of days unless you plan to freeze them.
  • Beans can be kept fresh for approximately four days, or blanched and frozen immediately after picking.

Health Benefits

Beans are a good source of vitamin-A, folic acid, vitamin-C and dietary fibre.
