Although fresh shell beans can be found in markets during July and August, the abundance and variety increase during late summer and into the autumn months. The palette is enormous, from American varieties such as cranberry, pinto and lima to Italian borlotti and cannellini and French flageolets. Each pod contains three or four beans. They take a bit of work to shell but are well worth the effort.
