Bush. A productive heirloom wax bean named for Rocquencourt, France, a town in France’s rich farming country. Wax beans were introduced to France in the 1840’s from Algeria, and this variety is surely a descendant of those early beans. The bush plants set good yields early and produce well in most climates. These beans are favored by cooks for their fine-flavored pods that are a bright waxy-yellow in color. This variety was listed in Mother Earth News as a favorite of well-known writer William Woys Weaver.

What are the pros? Great flavor, productive

What are the cons? Can be rubbery

Review:

These were my favorite from last year. Awesomely productive, and they had more flavor in my opinion than any of the others we tried. The pods did have a tendency to be a little tough, especially later in the summer, and were especially rubbery after being frozen. Now that I'm thinking about it....that thick hide would made for an awesomely crunchy pickle though. Looks like I'll have to grow them again and report back on that experiment... :) Seriously though, the beans are great.

What are the pros? Fun color

What are the cons? Plants flop over

Review:

We planted these beans mid-may and are starting to harvest now that it's July! These seem like really hardy plants, and produce a lot of beans. I haven't tried them cooked yet, because they taste so good right off the vine! I would definitely grow this variety again, and next time give them a little support cage so they don't flop over as the beans mature.

What are the pros? Fast, no fuss and productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

Relatively compact plants develop quickly. No diseases. They produce a lot of pods, so don't over plant. Check twice a day for new pods. I like mine very tender, so I watch them carefully to not let them over mature. Excellent. Will buy again!

Review:

Kinda slow to start but once they get going what a wonderful surprise !! I dislike store bought wax bean but thought hmm I'll give these a try and purchased 1 pack of seed. Now i have picked these cooked them and am sad that i didn't buy more lol Butter taste with so much flavor to them. I pick them once a week now and am canning as many as i can. Next year i will buy more. Without a doubt this crop as changed my views on wax beans.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these in a neglected container garden. They were delicious and kept producing until frost. Had I staked them, I probably would've been overrun with beans. I loved the taste, too.
