Product Description

The bright yellow pods of Golden Wax remind us of its deliciously buttery flavor. It's a bean without blemishes or strings, and each pod will grow between 4-5" long--making it a perfect bean for gardens of any size. If your garden has run out of space, be sure to try it with our Grow Tubs® in 7 or 10 gallons. Like most beans, Golden Wax is high in antioxidants, and contains high levels of vitamins, K, A and C, meaning this vegetable has anti-inflammatory properties. The plants will grow 16-18" high with minimal spread, and enjoys full sunlight with loose, rich, well-drained soil. 50 days to maturity.
