Difference between Green Beans and Haricot Verts?

yoyo28 | Aug 9, 2009 12:07 AM

I can't for the life of me figure out the difference between a green bean and a French green bean or "haricot vert". I'd like to buy some at the farmer's market, but they all look the same to me. They do have these really long ones too, but I think those are used in Asian cooking. Any tips?
