Green Long Bean

Names:

– Green Long Bean
– Long-podded Cowpea
– Asparagus Bean
– Snake Bean
– Chinese Long Bean.

Green beans, string beans, and snap beans are long and rounded and green. The long bean is also known as the long-podded cowpea, asparagus bean, snake bean, or Chinese long bean. They have a very pronounced flavor and have a distinctly beany taste, and are not sweet like the green bean. Long beans work best briefly steamed, stir-fried, or braised, but also hold up well when added to stews.
