For bean lovers everywhere, this wax bush bean has an outstanding flavour, although we found that they take a bit longer to cook than other fresh beans, they quickly became a favourite. This charming wax bush bean is an old heirloom from Europe. It has yellow-green pods that are streaked and mottled with a gorgeous purple. Plants grow to be between 60-75 cm tall in a bush growth habit. The flavour of the pods is excellent and a must-try! This bean can be harvested as a green bean when pods are crisp or left to mature further and harvested as a shelling bean. The seeds are a mottled brown and very tasty. These pods are versatile both in their use, and their unique colouring. They can be used either fresh or as dried beans, and there is no other variety with coloring quite like theirs.
