Resistant Cherokee Wax

52 days — 'Resistant Cherokee' is as the name implies, a mosaic resistant strain of 'Cherokee' wax bean.  The plants are vigorous and productive with pods that are five to six inches in length, pale yellowish-green in color, and with deep black seeds. It is an excellent early variety for home or market growers.

'Resistant Cherokee' was the result of a stabilized cross between 'Cherokee' and 'B2008' bred and introduced by the Asgrow Seed Company of New Haven, Connecticut in 1959.  Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 120 seeds.

Planting Instructions:
Beans prefer well-drained, rich soil in a sunny location. Make sure you keep them well watered in the summer heat.

Beans are a tender vegetable and you should not plant them until all danger of frost has passed and the soil remains above 65ºF. Sow seeds 1-1½ inches deep, every two to three inches. Bush-type beans do not require support.

For seed saving, allow pods to remain on the plant until they are brittle and open easily. However, if you live in an area with a short growing season, harvest as close to dry as possible and finish drying indoors. Rain and freezing temps will damage beans.
