Classic filet pole bean with excellent flavour and texture.
In the era of the now collectible French torchons or cloth tea towels, Vilmorin-Andrieux was breeding culinary French Filet beans for the palates of the court of King Louis XV. Though Americans are most familiar with mid-sized green beans, the thinner French filet beans make for much better eating. Slower to turn bulgy and stringy than American-style green beans, Emerite, a pole French filet bean, is thinner at harvest time. Cooking is quick - don't overdo it! - and the result is a pile of slender, tender vegetable that is pure ambrosia for the green bean lover's soul. If you've never grown pole beans, the ease of harvest and the long season of the vines will leave you amazed at how easy green beans can be. Be sure to provide a trellis while plants are still very young, pole beans yield generously as long as they are allowed to grow up.
