    C'est un haricot vert large et tt à fait plat. On me propose broad bean ou runner bean. A ma connaissance ce haricot se mange tjrs avec la cosse, comme le haricot vert très répandu. J'apprécierais en particulier l'appellation au RU. Merci.

    But 'mangetout' is not quite the same thing. I think it may be a lima or butter bean. See here

    The term 'runner bean' is not as commonly used as "Italian Flat Bean." You may want to see the following web site:

    Thank you for your information. Are these terms taken from some official source, and if so, which? Regards: Artrad
