According to Farmer’s weekly, green beans originated in Central and South America and have since been harvested for thousands of years in Mexico and Peru.
There are many different species of green beans like lima bean, the temper bean, yard long bean, and the American classic string green bean–which developed its name from the long fibrous string attached to it.
