Bean (Bush Snap) – Velour



Velour bean is our favorite French filet style bean, with straight, slender 4-5″ pods. Striking royal purple when fresh, turning green when cooked. Early and high yielding.  We enjoy this bean by itself or in a medley with our other bush beans. Although purple in color when fresh, it is a type of Haricot Verts- that’s French for thin green bean.
