The French Filet Bean is performing very well in East Tennessee gardens. Wilson Farms has a healthy harvest of these tender, slender beans that steam well.

In searching around the internet, many bloggers like the fact that the bean goes well in salads and some are cooking them with bacon pieces.

Another post indicates the bean is delicious in vegetable soup, or popped in the microwave with salt, pepper and butter.  Some growers report that the beans make a great snack plucked directly from the bush.  No doubt it’s a winner for those fiber-rich diets, too!
