'Buerre de Rocquencourt' is a popular French heirloom. It's an ever-bearing yellow wax bean that will maintain consistent production as long as the pods are collected regularly. It has good cold tolerance, even germinating well in cold, damp conditions. Great for fresh eating, freezing, cooking, or pickling! Our seed comes from our friends at Adaptive Seeds in Oregon.


GROWING TIPS: Direct seed 1-2 inches deep in rows 12-24 inches apart. Plants could be 3-5 inches apart.
