Green beans grow well in Tasmania’s cool summer conditions, aided by ample supplies of clean water and long summer daylight hours.
Tasmania grows $18 million of green beans which is equivalent to approximately 25% of the national production. A large proportion of this goes into the processing sector principally the frozen vegetable market. However, beans are also consumed fresh and sold in the domestic market.
