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 for freezing and good for canning variety. 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!
