Phaseolus vulgaris  25 seeds  60 days to maturity

Known as a wax bean, these plump, juicy, yellow beans with purple flecks are an old time dual-purpose heirloom with superb flavor. Eat the beans when they are yellow with purple stripes. We love them raw or cooked. Harvest the dry bean pods and use the dry beans in soups and stews.
