Organic Tavera Filet Bean Had we but one bean to eat all summer, this surely is the one. Exceptionally tender, stringless and nutty-sweet, Tavera is simply luscious. (This style bean is especially popular in France where it has been selected for centuries and is known as French Filet or Haricot Vert beans.) Tavera is a very compact, high-yielding variety that is resistant to Anthracnose and Bean Common Mosaic Virus, as well.

Our Thoughts on Green Beans

We offer two green bush snap beans, Provider and Tavera, because they serve unique functions in our garden. If you want to pickle and preserve, Provider is your bean. Abundance all at once makes preservation easy: Provider the perfect bean to feed you through the winter. We plant Provider first (mid-May) because it grows in cooler soils so we eat Provider first --- but when Tavera (planted late May/early June) is on our plates two to three weeks later there is no looking back. Every year we're blown away by their exquisite flavor and delicate texture. If flavor is why you garden, Tavera is for you.

Reviewer: Mark Erbelding from Rochester, NY United States  
Beans were not as large as I'm accustomed to getting but they did produce lots of fruit.

Tons of beans! December 21, 2016
Reviewer: Melissa Pletscher-Nizinsky from Penfield, NY United States  
I will definitely grow these again. The plants produced tons of beans. Beans were very tasty. I think my favorites.

So tender with delicate flavor August 27, 2015
Reviewer: Beverly Brown from Rochester, NY United States  
These slender and delicious beans have come on sporadically all summer. Not sure where all the plants went and they could be buried under corn and potatoes that took off, but when I could find the plants, the beans were tasty and tender. These have gourmet meal written all over them. They are much thinner than the Provider and make you look more closely when they are on your plate.  A very light sauce is all it takes to make them shine.
