Bring the bright, garden sunshine right to your plate. Pick 'Eureka' as a young, filet bean or let mature to a beautiful, bright yellow. Plants produce heavy yields of very tender, 5"–6" beans, and yellow pods make finding the harvest a snap! Steamed, pickled, or fresh, you will love this wax bean. Disease resistant.
$1.99 25 grams (~80 seeds)

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Days to Maturity: 50–55 days

Family: Fabaceae

Native: Mexico and South America

Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual

Plant Dimensions: 16" tall, 22" wide

Variety Information: White flowers are followed by 5"–6" long, bright yellow pods filled with about 7 small, white seeds. Disease resistant to bean common mosaic virus.

Type: Snap bean

Attributes: Disease Resistant, Good for Containers

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.

Days to Emerge: 6 – 12 days

Seed Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: 1 seed every 4"

Row Spacing: 24"

Thinning: Not required

Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod "snaps" or breaks in half cleanly. This is when the seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold the stem with one hand, and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. At season's end, plants are great compost material if they are disease-free.

Because bush beans were developed from pole beans (for condensed and easier harvests), sometimes they can revert to some of the traits of their predecessors by stretching and getting a little lanky before settling into more of a compact bush habit. Thus, why your bush bean appears to be a pole bean.

Waiting for the beans

Due to the water restrictions in a local drought....plants have been germinating, growing, and flowering but are taking their time developing their beans.....looking forward to them when fully grown.

We have planted these several years in a row and sought then out when a major seed distributor no longer carried them. The wax beans are tasty and they keep producing and producing! My husband blanches and freezes ziplock bags of them to enjoy all year.

These beans taste delish! And they were very easy to grow, I packed them into my community garden plot, and did not pay too much attention to them and they made TONS of beans! Wills definitely plant again next year

Been looking for yellow beans! Loved them when I lived in Wisconsin. These plants went crazy! I got beans, beans and more beans. Very tasty - neighbors never heard of yellow beans here. Passed some on to them and they asked for more. Produces a lot of beans.

Very happy with these tender, sweet beans. Separate early summer and fall plantings (1 bag) produced 3 1/2 cups table ready beans. Some second flowering and fruits with initial planting. Looking forward to planting more in 2022.

Mid Summer too late for a crop

3 out of 5 stars Nov 30, 2021
These germinated but unfortunately bunny ate them. I did sow again in mid summer but apparently too late for production. I therefore didn't get any beans from these plants.
Teresa from MA
Owner Response: Hi Teresa, It seems like you had good germination from these seeds but could use help planning for a fall crop to boost the review rate? Because days (daylight) are shorter in late summer and nights can be coolers it is a good idea to add at least two weeks to the days to maturity to account for slower growth. You use the adjusted days to maturity to count backwards from your average first frost day to give the crop plenty of time. We have a couple of articles on the topics if you are interested.
