Poll: Name that veggie!

Those of you who read all the way to the end of my long post about Cracker Barrel Sunday dinners should have seen my pop quiz about what vegetable pictured in the post has two names. None of you answered, but you’re still obligated to vote in my next poll!

Extra credit: Leave me a comment about why you prefer one name over the other!

About Joan

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!

    LOL, I grew up hearing them called string beans, and I trust my parents’/grandparents’ ‘expertise’. I’ve kind of gotten away from that over the years, though, but I think I’ll go back to calling them string beans. It’s a nice connection to my roots, no pun intended.

    String beans, no question about it. Snap one of them in two and you immediately see why. ;)

  3. Jim Fahringer says:

    We have always called them string beans also, but perhaps the real name is green beans or pole beans depending on whether they were grown on vines that grew up poles or grew on bushes. By the way, if they are the kind that grow on bushes and hang down close to the ground, picking them is one of the most difficult back breaking jobs I ever had and are tied with picking strawberries as a back breaking job!

  4. Joe says:

    Don’t all bean start in a “string?” Got to sepaate them somehow.

  5. Phil says:

    I really should vote twice and pick both. It depends on the dish. If served alone, “green beans.” But in certain dishes, it changes. For example, “string beans and ham.”
