(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 grow these every year. They produce like crazy and are easy to find and pick. They are very tasty raw or cooked. I also have pickled them when we have a ton. I haven't tried freezing or canning them yet. I grow a few varieties of beans every year, and these always make the list. The seeds from here always germinate much better than ones I have tried elsewhere. I am hoping to get organized enough this year to save seeds. Try this bean... you will love it!

Review:

I left the last pods on to dry for winter soup beans, and they were extremely delicious! The were also particularly tasty in korean-style mixed rice along with dried chick peas. Soak them overnight with the chick peas and then cook them along with mixed rice for a nutritious side dish.

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.
