I have a recipe which includes Romano beans, but I'm not sure what they are.
Have you heard of them and if so, are they known by another name? Any help
would be appreciated. - Brian Johnston (2/12/02)
beans (a.k.a. Italian String Beans) are really just a different variety of
snap bean, and are grown and eaten the same way.
Broad flat-podded green
snap beans with flat 5- to 6-inch pods are often called Italian Pole or
Romano beans, and varieties include Roma, Greencrop, and Bush Romano.
NOTE: You can substitute any type of green beans for the Romano beans
in your recipe.
