Beans - Wax Cherokee


Beans – Wax Cherokee

Wax Cherokee is a bush bean that produces long, tender, butter yellow pods that have a slightly nutty flavour. The beans themselves are a striking jet black. An excellent addition to the garden.

Sow 2-5cm deep; Plant spacing at 5-15cm; Germination period between 8- 10 days; Soil temperatures between 16˚C and 30˚C; Harvest time approx. 7 to 10 weeks.

Beans are best sown direct and do not like to be transplanted. An easy crop to grow, bush beans enjoy full sun, even moisture and well-drained soil. Will tolerate part shade although will have reduced yield. For successive cropping, sow more seeds when beans start to flower. Regular harvesting will increase yield.
