(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? Productive and Tasty

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

What a wonderful little bean. I planted about 20-30 of these seeds and I’ve been absolutely blown away by how productive they’ve been. They took about a two week break during a hot spell in July, but they’re once again pumping out tons of perfect yellow beans. The bushes are strong and stand up well with no support, the beans are delicious. They cook quickly and are not stringy. I just can’t say enough good things. Will grow these again!

What are the pros? Tons of beans for weeks

What are the cons? None

Review:

These beans are one of the easiest things for me to grow and greatly outproduced the Calima and Cantare green beans that I planted at the same time . The plants seem less attractive to aphids than the green beans. Very high germination rate. The bright yellow color also makes them easy to see to harvest. I actually pulled out my plants early this season because they were TOO prolific... 18 plants produced way more than my family could eat, even though we've been eating 2 lbs a week!

What are the pros? Just about everything

What are the cons? Can’t think of a thing

Review:

Have had two years growing these and I’m so glad they’re in my life. My family can be picky but I’ve been told we must plant more, we don’t have enough (we have a dozen plus plants mind you). Very tasty. Very easy. Very quick germination. Very large yields. Love it and a new every year standard.

Review:

Produces an abundance of golden tender beans. Mild bean flavor that everyone enjoys. We usually mix them in with other green beans when cooking a mess. They stand strong and are easy to harvest, the yellow bean is easily seen in the green foliage. They also stand strong until they are dry so it makes easy seed collection for the following year. An absolute for homesteads looking for a bean with high yields for canning or selling at a farmers market. I highly recommend this bean

What are the pros? Delicious beans. Productive

What are the cons? I wish they were runners

Review:

These are delicious beans that grow fairly quickly and produce a great number of beans. This was my second time planting them. They do well both in the spring/summer and fall (in my area). The plants are fairly small; however, I wish they were runners to save space and have them go vertical. But this is not the plant's problem, since it was not made that way. Even still, I give them space in my garden because they are excellent and not stringy. These are a new staple crop for us.
