Gold Rush

Gold Rush Bush Wax Bean OG

(54 days) Open-pollinated. Much better than Indy Gold. Tender 5–6" straight round stringless beans have excellent flavor and high yields. Yellow pods with green tips hold well on the vigorous plants. If you give your market customers a sample, they won’t pan this gold! White seed. Tolerates CBMV. ID-certified organic. NEW!

Additional Information

Bush Wax Beans

Wax beans were developed in the 1830s.

Beans

Phaseolus vulgaris 2 oz packet sows 25 ft; 1 lb, 200 ft. Avg 180 seeds/2 oz packet.

Culture: Legumes have moderate fertility needs. 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°.

Diseases:

  • ANTH: Anthracnose
  • BBS: Bacterial Brown Spot
  • CBMV: Common Bean Mosaic Virus
  • CTV: Curly Top Virus
  • DM: Downy Mildew
  • HB: Halo Blight
  • NY 15: NY 15 Mosaic Virus
  • PM: Powdery Mildew
  • PMV: Pod Mottle Virus
  • R: Rust
  • SC: Sclerotina

Wider spacing reduces likelihood of SC (white mold). Don’t disturb wet foliage.
