Golden Rocky Bean

Phaseolus vulgaris

$5.95

20 seeds
OUT-OF-STOCK FOR 2022. 50 days. Yellow bush bean that produces abundant, uniform, tender and delicious snap beans. Excellent variety for northern growers - seeds germinate and grow well in cooler, damp conditions of spring. Beans retain yellow color after cooking, so we love sautéing them with green beans and garlic. Golden Rocky stood out as good for fresh eating in our 2019 bush bean trial. This variety shows good resistance to Common Bean Mosaic Virus. We were first given this seed by local longtime organic farming elder Annie from Community Farm of Ann Arbor - thanks Annie for introducing us to this fantastic bean!  This French heirloom reportedly traces back to Algeria. Also good for dry, black bean production. (Aka Beurre de Rocquencourt) HOJ

Protect seedlings from slugs/snails (use caffeinated coffee grounds or organic phosphate based slug bait). Days to germination: 6-16. Protect plants from groundhogs & deer.
