(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.

What are the pros? Taste, production and beauty

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I held on to these for almost two years before planting them. What an absolute waste of time! They are and all around amazing bean. Stunning purple flowers produce the most beautiful bean, with no imperfections. I have three plants and get about 10 to 15 beans daily. I will be planting more so that I get a better yield. These are small plants, about a foot high. But beautiful purple flowers and the ease of finding these yellow pods on a bright green leafy background just add to the list of things to admire. Superfast to germinate and produce. I soaked the beans for a few hours before planting and in less than a week they little guys were popping out of the soil. I didn't get the greatest germination but I expect that's because they were a bit old. Very happy with these though - no complaints.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? My plants are small

Review:

Though mine are small in stature,they produce quite well. I haven't been super successful with bush beans before. That said all of these germinated and are producing. I like that even if you leave them on the plant a few extra days they are still tasty and don't bulge out or become fibrous or starchy like most of my other beans. Beautiful purple flowers and tender and tasty beans. A win-win.

It's my first year growing these and they have far surpassed all of the other bush beans I have grown. They are easy to grow, prolific, delicious and beautiful. I am adding these to my keeper list.

What are the pros? plants are beautiful

What are the cons? plants not bush

Review:

Wanted to love these, considering the wonderful description and reviews. But these plants were not bush, they trailed all over the garden and wrapped around other plants. I checked several descriptions online regarding this variety and all said they are bush beans. They are wonderful plants but if I'd known they were so trailing, I would have provided trellis. We haven't tasted them yet, so if they are as tasty as described, next year I'll know about and trellis them.
