Here is the Cherokee Wax Yellow Bean, Phaseolus vulgaris. Wax bush beans comprise only about 3% of the total snap bean market, and are grown most predominantly in Canada and eastern Europe. This wax bush bean is excellent as a home garden variety and is beautiful in a three bean salad. We found this variety to be a very productive type with bean pods about 4.5 inches long with a crisp texture that is great for eating fresh. Plants are good producers and only get to 18 inches tall but may reach 2 feet in full direct sun light. This variety in know for it's ability to stays tender when frozen. Open pollinated 36 to 55 days. Easy to grow in pots.

Culture: Legumes have moderate fertility needs. Go easy on the nitrogen. Excessive nitrogen may induce some varieties to develop vines in moist hot weather. Tender, will not survive frost. Plant 3–4 seeds/ft. in rows 24–30" apart. Pick frequently for maximum yields, but avoid disturbing foliage in wet weather to prevent spread of fungal diseases. White-seeded beans usually don’t germinate as well as dark-seeded. Minimum germination soil temperature 60°. Optimal range 60–80°. Optimal temperature 77°. Emergence takes 16 days at 59°; only 8 days at 77°. Produce 97% normal seedlings at 77°, but only 47% at 86°.
