(Bush Wax Bean). 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.

Review:

I usually plant a different kind of wax bean from a different seed company, but this year they were temporarily out of stock, so I ordered these beans. I planted a row, and then the other beans from the other company came in, and I planted a row of them alongside the Rocquencourt. The Rocquencourt germinated first, and the plants outperformed the "others" in so many ways. The Rocquencourt are strong, bushy plants with a gorgeous green color, and beautiful purple flowers. They start producing like mad, and the beans are long and straight, good looking and delicious. In contrast, the "other" beans from the other company had spindly plants, lighter weakly colored flowers, and the beans are not uniform in shape and they curl a lot, which is not good if you are canning them. You can really tell the difference between the plant rows. I am now a convert and will be planting this bean only from now on.

Review:

These were hands-down my favorite beans ever. The more you pick, the more they grow! And they're DELICIOUS! During the heart of summer, I picked them once each week for fresh eating (family of 4) and a second picking each week for freezing.

This is by far the best wax bean we have ever grown. Highly productive. we have three rows around 18 feet long and after picking we have plenty to can 7 quarts with plenty left over to eat and give away. Nice, long wax bean.

Planted these for the first time in 2015. They are now one of our favorite beans, that we grew again this year. They are just starting to produce and are covered with blossoms.
