Phaseolus vulgaris. Yellow Pods. 50 days.

This delicate yellow wax bean is often the first to mature. Delicious buttery flavor, uniform size and shape for easy processing, and high yields make this a standout bush wax variety. Yellow pods can be picked when small as filet beans for extra tender texture. Plants grow well in cold and wet growing conditions in the beginning of the season, so they are well adapted to northern climates. According to Mother Earth News, “The variety takes its name from Rocquencourt, a town near Versailles. In the 19th and early 20th centuries Rocquencourt was famous for its fine vegetables, so the name carried the connotation of high quality. The bean evolved locally through selection and became fully recognized as a commercial variety in the 1930s.”Thanks for the intel Mother Earth News!

    Where did you grow this variety? Canada

    Great bean, produces early and just kept coming (to the point where you get tired of picking them). The pods are so long and slim, beautiful, tender, not highly beany. They freeze fine, may need less blanching time. A friend loved them for pickled beans, so we are growing more this year. However, gets mushy for canning.
    I hope it’s okay to review this given I got my seed elsewhere, and now am raising my own seed.
