Dragons Tongue Wax Bush Bean-50 Seeds

Dragons Tongue Wax Bush Bean-50 Seeds


Out of stock

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.

Like many other bush bean plants, Dragon’s Tongue Wax beans require lots of water as well as full sun. Seeds should be sown 2.5 cm deep, outdoors after the final frost of the season, as they need 60 to 90 days to reach full maturity, depending on what type of harvest is desired. Sow seeds an inch deep in well-drained soil. Allow at least 45 cm between rows and 8-12 cm between plants. For fresh green beans, harvest pods individually when they are crisp enough to snap off of the vine, but the beans inside have not yet fully formed. For shelling purposes keep the pods on the plant for longer to allow them to dry and become less tender. This takes to 90-110 days.
