Bean, Bush Snap, 'Gold Rush'


Our dear friend and long-time employee, Rio, has been encouraging us to seek out a good yellow wax bean to sell for years, and we finally found one in the 'Gold Rush'. Plants are VERY productive, hanging heavy with beautiful, straight, slender pods. Easy to see amidst the green foliage, they are a breeze to pick and the crisp, exceptionally tender beans are perfection with the lightest bit of steaming of sauteeing. Originally released in 1980, it shows good resistance to bean mosaic virus.
