BEAN BRITTLE WAX

Description
Brittle Wax Yellow Bush Bean Seeds 1150 Heirloom Vegetable. This old time gem was first introduced around 1900! Round, fleshy, brittle, medium yellow pods about 15 cm (6″) long have a rich flavour. Erect, bushy plants bear an abundance of the tender string-less pods at an early date. Anyone who likes fresh bush beans should definitely try this variety! White Seed.

How to Grow
4-5 seed/gram. Beans tolerate a wide range of soil types. Their best growth is in light, organic, well drained soil with a pH of about 6.5. Beans have a distinct dislike for cold, wet soils, so sow seed only after the soil has warmed to at least 16 C (60 F). Sow 2.5 cm (1″) deep and 8 cm (3″) apart in rows spaced 45 to 70 cm (18 to 28″) apart. To ensure a continuous harvest, sow bush-type varieties every 10 days until mid-July. Keep beans evenly watered, particularly when the plants are in flower and when production of the pods start. Avoid the use of high nitrogen fertilizer. Nitrogen promotes excessive foliage. Avoid disturbing beans when leaves are damp to reduce the incidence of disease.
