The Shelling Bean - Phaseolus vulgaris - is an annual cultivated in the vegetable garden for its pod. The pods are harvested when they start to turn yellow for fresh or semi-dry consumption. Wait until they are completely parchment-like and dry for a harvest of dry seeds. These can then be stored for a long time and consumed cooked. Sowing is done after the last frost in warm soil and harvesting continues until the end of summer. Varieties such as Coco Blanc précoce or Soissons Gros Blanc can be enjoyed in stews. There are many traditional dishes that use Shelling Beans.
