Organic Tavera Filet Bean
54 days to snap stage | Phaseolus vulgaris
Had we but one bean to eat all summer, this surely is the one. Exceptionally tender, stringless and nutty-sweet, Organic Tavera Bush Filet Bean is simply luscious. (This style bean is especially popular in France where it has been selected for centuries, known fondly as French Filet or ‘haricot vert.’)
Beyond simply delectable, Tavera is a very compact and high-yielding variety as well as resistant to Anthracnose and Bean Common Mosaic Virus. Truly, she’s exceptional.
Now, let’s talk flavor and concentrated productivity!
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 is 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. Who knew there was so much diversity in green beans? We grow them all and love to share them all with you.
