Description:
The wax bean is a great choice for those just starting out as gardeners, since these are easy plants to grow that require little care. In addition to producing crisp beans, this bush-type plant gives vibrant, light yellow pods that make a great accent piece in a garden. With this particular variety, the pods grow in clusters close to the stalk, so they are easy to pick.

Growing Instructions:
Start by sowing the seeds directly outside, 1" deep in soil when the soil temperature is above 60° degrees and frost has passed. Leave about 4-6" between plants in rows 2-3 feet wide. While growing, give these plants one inch of water a week, and water as close to the root as possible. Getting the leaves wet can lead to disease which can harm the plant and affect the yield. The beans will be ready to harvest after about 50-60 days when the pods are smooth and firm.
