Golden Wax Bean (52 days)

One of the oldest known wax beans, Golden Wax was first introduced sometime around 1871. 

There have been many variations over the years, but Golden Wax was also known as Topnotch or Rustproof Golden Wax.

Golden Wax bean is a bush type plant that produces excellent yields of golden yellow wax beans.  Good for northern climates as well as the south. 

Golden Wax bean grows 16" tall, compact, and produces delicious golden pods about 5-6" long.  Pods are stringless, straight, and posses a rich buttery flavor. 

Steady and productive.  An excellent variety for freezing and good for canning.  Great for three bean salads. 

Rust resistant strain.  1932 Burpee says "The variety has proved to be practically free from rust except when grown under decidedly unfavorable conditions."

The Texas Cooperative Extension at Texas A&M recommends this variety for Texas!

Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:

50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65° or higher. Grow best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Avoid planting in soil that stays wet.  Heirloom bean diseases thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.

Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5.  This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur. 

Try wide row growing for bush beans.  Make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one.  Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width.  You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you'll save on water.
