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.

Sow: November to January (Cool climate)

Spacing: 15cm apart, rows 30 to 40 cm.

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)

  • approx 3 seeds per gram.
