When the beans are very young and tender, they may be eaten whole. However, the Fava Beans’ are usually peeled to avoid any bitterness occasionally caused by the skin. The beans themselves are green and have an earthy flavor.

With a uniquely colored, edible pod of distinctive purple streaks and flecks over a pale yellow background, the Dragon Tongue Bean is considered a “Romano” variety -- flat, wide and flavorful. 

Use raw for an unusual splash of color in salads, as a garnish or pickled with spices. When cooked the beans’ color fades, while its flavor intensifies; use in stir fry and casseroles.

Whether picked very small and immature or left to grow to its full 8-inch length the Dragon Tongue retains its tender texture, unlike other fresh bean varieties that turn tough.
