Bean - Roc D'Or - Phaseolus vulgaris
Tender Annual Bush. Snap. Heirloom. Savor the buttery flavor of these yellow bean pods with black seeds. Easy enough for a new gardener, with no trellising needed, the bushes stay under 2’, making them ideal for waist-high containers too. Many say this is their favorite wax bean.
Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and with a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, moderately at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering.
Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates. Use fiber pots or soil blocks because beans do not like to be transplanted. In other climates beans prefer to be seeded directly once soils have reached at least 65°F 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. For best results, harvest the pods when they are pencil width.
Did You Know? Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod breaks cleanly in half.
