GOLD CROP BEAN (56 days)


Germ 4-10 days
Golden yellow beans are held high on an upright bush, this variety is sometimes called the wax bean for people who don’t like wax beans. Bountiful harvests of 5-7” pods make Gold Crop a must for the small garden. Cook in combination with green beans for an attractive mid-summer meal. 150 seeds


Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered

Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.

Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.
