Every Wednesday, we take turns making or buying snack for everyone and have an all-employee shin-dig. Last week, Jessie and Krista from the trials crew brought in a few beautiful blueberry pies – but they were off-limits until everyone had diligently completed the bean taste test!

23 varieties, both raw and cooked, received ratings on flavor and texture, as well as comments and a vote for overall top three. Bean categories included snap beans, filet beans, romano beans, gold beans, purple beans, some striped beans.

This process helps us get to better know the varieties we offer in our catalog, and also helps us select stand-out new varieties that we hope to offer in the future – stay tuned!
