Produce Information / Storage Tips

Use a Bluapple® to absorb ethylene gas to extend the life of produce.

Beans - Long bean, Yard-long

Indications of Quality

Beans should be well formed and straight, bright in color with a fresh appearance, and tender but firm. Leaves, stems, broken beans, blossom remains, insect damage should not be present. Decreased quality during postharvest handling is most often associated with water loss, chilling injury, and decay.

Ideal Storage Conditions

Temperature: 40 to 45 F (4 to 7 C)
Relative Humidity: 90 to 95%
Approximate Storage Life: 7-10 days*

Ethylene Production: Low

Storage Tips

Do not wash before storing. Place in a VeggieZips™ produce bag if desired. A HydroLIner™ is not necessary. 

* Approximate storage life is an estimate of in-home storage length. Your results may vary significantly depending on how long produce is in transit or in stock at the market.
