Chinese Long Beans

Although they're sometimes called "yardlong beans", Chinese long beans are only about one and a half feet long. Still, these sweet green pods are loaded with vitamins and minerals, such as fiber, vitamin C, and manganese. Chinese long beans are popular in many Asian cuisines and are often stir-fried or steamed just long enough for them to stay juicy and tender.

Selection Process:

Find Chinese long beans in bundles at any Asian market. Select pods that are free of bulging, which suggests that the peas inside are overripe. Prepare and enjoy within a few days as these beans quickly go limp.
