Baby Purple French beans are available at farmers markets in the early summer and sometimes can even be found in early fall.
Sometimes red to a purplish black, the baby Purple French bean may have an attractive dark coppery tint. Offering a vegetable flavor with a just right hint of sweetness, its crisp texture is best lightly cooked.
Baby Purple French beans are fat-free, low in sodium, cholesterol-free, low in calories and are a good source of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber.
The baby Purple French bean's pod loses its intense color during cooking. Do not overcook to maintain its crisp-tender bite. To protect freshness and vitamin benefits, microwave, steam, blanch, briefly sauté or add the last few minutes to stir-fries.
Baby Purple French beans are usually harvested about eight to ten days after flowering. Best harvested when brightly colored, the bean pod will be fleshy and have a crisp texture.
