This is a popular French heirloom also known as 'Buerre de Rocquencourt.' 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 was grown by Clint Freund and Kass McKinnon of Cultivating the Commons in Madison, Wisconsin.

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