Bean - Golden Wax - Phaseolus vulgaris
Tender Annual Bush. Stringless deep yellow wax pole bean with vigorous vines. A tasty bean for eating fresh, caning, and freezing. Pods are round, straight, 4"-6" long, tender and meaty. Good for Northern climates. Early, dependable bushes produce white seed with purple-brown eyes.
Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, medium at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.
Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.
Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks' time. Harvest fresh for eating or leave the pods on the plant until they have completely dried. Store dry, shelled beans in an airtight container.
