I get similar questions of what does that bean taste like? Generally they taste like beans and if I could very accurately describe a taste of a bean. The next person might say well it didn't taste like that at all. Taste and what one likes in flavor is very subjective. Perception of flavor and texture can vary quite a bit from person to person. Although I do find at seed swaps I attend some people do react to recommendations from someone who grows a certain vegetable a lot.I KNOW that most of the bean conversations are about how they look, but I was wondering--What do all of your experts think are the best TASTING beans?
When it comes to dry beans I like a lot of them. Most of my dry bean use is a mixture all the time so I'm not really clued into particular flavor or texture on individual varieties. Snap beans I have a couple of favorites that I think have nice bean flavor and texture. Bush bean favorites include, Tendergreen, Topcrop, Provider, Comtesse De Chambord and two of my own originals of Buffy, and Illinois Snap. Pole bean snap favorites are Fasold, Louisiana, Weaver, Leslie Tenderpod, and Logan Giant. If I would take the time to try others I might find more favorites. In the final analysis the best thing to do is try different things yourself and discover what it is that you like.
