Bush Bean Cherokee Wax
Cherokee wax is a butter bean producing bright yellow, straight and flat beans to 18cm long. It appears to remain stringless at all ages. A regular in my garden each summer.

The common bean is a highly variable species that has a long history of cultivation. All wild members of the species have a climbing habit, but many cultivars are classified either as bush beans or dwarf beans, or as pole beans or climbing beans, depending on their style of growth.
Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 24 to 26 C (around 7 days to germination)
