Thanks!  Our vacation wasn't without injury...I think I'll start a thread though, so as not to hijack the green bean thread.

Can anyone post a pic of green string beans? Not downloaded from popular internet sites please  , just want to see whether what I think is what it is. There was a minor discussion on string beans, snap beans & green string beans a while ago...and there nothing conclusive came out of it

No piccies, unfortunately. Maybe someone with a garden will post some for us

As far as I know, string beans, snap beans and green string beans are all the same thing, with some varietal differences. Here's what I've learned over the years, and if I'm wrong someone please correct me:

~~String beans are so-called because the older varieties had to have a thin string of tough fiber removed from the seam running down the pod. Newer varieties don't have that fiber, they've been hybridized to remove it. I remember stringing beans though! Almost as bad as shelling peas!  

~~Snap beans have been bred to be meatier and crisper than the older varieties, mainly because they are intended to be eaten in the immature form. Snap beans can also refer to 'wax' beans, which are a variety that tend to be more brittle and easier to snap in half. They have a waxy appearance, hence the name.

~~Green string beans are string beans. Calling them 'green' is likely another way of referring to the immature form of the bean. This probably goes back to the time when you planted a variety you could eat 'green' and then let mature for the 'shelly' beans inside.

Hope this is helpful to you! You can also check out the Wikipedia entry on green or string beans to get more particulars, if you're interested.

I could take a picture of mine but it might be a few days before I could get it up.  I can't go to the garden right now because I can barely walk, but when I can go again I'll pick the beans, take a picture and post it here for you to see.

What do you want to see - the beans or the "bush"?

If you want a picture of the beans, I could photo some frozen or you can look at:

If you want the plant, sorry I can't help at the moment.

Thanks all!
ABJoe I wanted to see the vegetable in the flesh, so to speak. In the Hunter list it's listed with 2 different values, which could make it to the errata list at some point in time I guess...
