Encouraging home gardening and seed saving since 1986

Wax Beans


Wax beans are simply yellow beans. These, like the green beans section, are also all bush varieties. Of course all beans can be used as dry beans even if the variety is more commonly grown as a fresh eating bean. If some of your beans get overripe before you manage to eat them fresh, let them ripen and dry on the plant to harvest them and eat as dry beans, or even for seed for next year’s garden!
