Dwarf French beans are small, dark and oval in shape with seed ends pointing up. They are similar to the beans you usually eat, but they have a bit more of a kick. Many cooks claim that French beans have more flavor and are better than regular beans because they are harder to find. There is also some debate as to whether Dwarf French beans seeds contain any more protein than regular French beans.
The Dwarf French bean is a member of the Agavita genus of beans. These are bean varieties that are smaller and darker. They are most commonly found in south America, but are also found in other parts of South America, Africa and Southeast Asia. The seeds are small but can be large and spherical when they are picked. The dwarf French bean pod resembles the bean pod of a regular bean but with one end being smaller than the other.
The dwarf French beans seeds are used the same way as regular French beans. They are often added to stir fries or bean dips, and sometimes used alone in salads. Some chefs enjoy the smaller size of these beans. The smaller size makes them easier to blend into sauces. Because the beans are small, they also tend to cook faster.
When buying the dwarf French bean, make sure that you purchase them dry. You don't want to soak them before cooking. The dark green stringless pods are sold in small bags, so it may take a little practice at first to get them to look the same as they did in the bag. The dark green stringless pods are the part you should see when you open up the bag.
Look closely at the color of the seeds inside the bag. If the seed looks like a dark grayish brown, it is most likely dry. French beans that look more like a cream color will be fully cooked. Another way to tell is by looking at the size of the seed. The smaller stringless pods approximately the size of a grain of sand are considered medium rare.
The flavor of the Dwarf French beans seeds is somewhere between the regular French beans and Lima beans. It is not as robust as the regular variety, but it has a sweeter taste. The Dwarf French beans are also known for having a stronger aroma than regular French beans.

Some people claim that the seeds of the dwarf French beans do not have enough bitterness in them to be considered true French beans.
Another difference that is noted with the dwarf French bean seeds is that they have a much shorter shelf life. The dark green stringless pods will not keep for very long. When the bean is picked, it has to be dried quickly because the moisture content is extremely low. After being dried the beans are then made into a powder. It is then ground into a protein to be used for animal feeds.
The texture of the seeds is like a soft leather. The shape of the bean when it is harvested is actually quite large compared to the seed beads. This large shape is what gives it its signature name of "dwarf." The Dwarf French bean seed beads come in a 22-gauge silk and open cell paper, which make it a popular choice for jewelry making.
