“BEST GREEN BEANS EVER!!! These beans are also known as Kentucky Wonders. They were the variety that my father always grew in our garden and are of the flat bean type. They have flavor galore! I have included a photo of the cans to show the brand and kind to purchase. A dish is always included on the menu at our family gatherings and are looked forward to.”
