Some beans will grow 10 months out of the Lowcountry year. They are important crops on the Sea Island truck farms south of Charleston. All kinds are grown in the Lowcountry, from the tiniest “lady peas” to big Old World favas. Beans that are eaten whole, cooked in the pod, are usually called “green beans,” “string beans,” or “pole beans”; two recipes follow. Tender young green beans are also “jarred,” as Geechees call canning (see Dilly Beans).
