10 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
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? 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.

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.

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? Grew slowly at first

Review:

I ordered these based on the positive reviews and ended up very pleased with these beans after an initial slow start. (I planted them in a new raised bed, so I blame the slow start on the soil, not the seeds.) I almost ripped them out because they were growing so slowly, but am really glad that I left them to grow. As other beans were fading, these came on strong. Flavor is excellent. I will definitely grow them again.

Review:

I sought these out as an experiment, hoping to find a wax bean to my liking that would produce well for me [zone 8b], after several failed attempts with 'big box store' varieties. Not only did these beauties produce in prolific fashion ~ they held the most. incredible. flavor. I've ever experienced in a wax bean! They were immediately bestowed a prominent place on my list of Things To Grow. I do not wish to ever be without them.
