Indy Gold
265NO Indy Gold Bush Wax Bean OG (54 days) Back by popular demand. Though we have to pay a royalty to offer it and it is therefore pricey, our customers are impressed that it produces such high quality pods and requires only one planting. “The best yellow bean ever; it outproduced Provider. We canned enough for several years, gave away tons to friends and finally decided to euthanize them by withholding water in drought. They would not die! Eventually it rained toward fall and they came back,” testified Penny Kujawinski of Harrisburg, MO. Tender yellow pods with attractive green tips average 5". Heavy-yielding large plants not slowed even in cold wet summers. Beans, held high off the ground, are easy to pick and hold well. Also makes a delicious shell bean. White-seeded. Tolerates CBMV. PVP. ID-certified.

Additional Information

Bush Wax Beans

Wax beans were developed in the 1830s.


Phaseolus vulgaris 2 oz packet sows 25 ft; 1 lb, 200 ft. Avg 180 seeds/2 oz packet. All beans are open-pollinated.

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°.
