Pole Snap Bean, Gold Nectar (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Round Yellow Pods. 70 days.

Yellow/wax bean yields lots of crunchy beans with excellent sweet and beany flavor. The 9″ long straight pods are 1⁄2″ wide with a semi-flat shape. Anne Berblinger of Gales Meadow Farm in Forest Grove, Oregon, says about Gold Nectar, “We have been searching for a yellow pole bean with outstanding flavor. This one is it.” It starts fairly early and produces tender beans until late in the season, drying down seed very slowly. This trait is great for delicious snap beans but is a challenge for our seed production. We collected this variety at a seed swap in Belgium; unfortunately we don’t know much about its history, although it might be related to the variety Neckargold.

    Excellent yellow pole bean

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    This is a beautiful, prolific, delicious yellow snap. The yellow color is a standout in the garden and in the kitchen. It is excellent raw, lightly cooked or pickled. Don’t pass this one up if you are looking for a great yellow pole bean which are hard to fine. I have grown this for three years in Eugene, Oregon.
