Sources and commentaries

French beans are the immature pods of green or purple beans of round section, before the development of seeds (1), or with small or immature seeds (2). The name is usually at the plural form. Names such as snap bean, Brechbohne and breekboon indicate that they are broken by hand before cooking, in contrast with runner bean, which cannot be broken, but is instead cut with a knife. MC
