Bean – Gold Rush Bush


This early very popular yellow wax bush bean yields a heavy picking of perfect, straight round pods that steam up for delicious side dishes, bean salads and canning. The golden yellow beans hold their tender, tasty quality for a long time in the garden on disease-resistant plants. The fruit has a great flavour and holds its quality on the bush plant over a long period. Beans freeze well.

Botanical name
Phaseolus vulgaris ‘Gold rush’


Sow the seeds 10-20 cm (4-8″) apart in rows that are 60-90 cm (24-36″) apart.

Lay seeds on their side and cover with 2 cm (1″) of soil. Firm the soil with your fingers.

Hot and sunny. Loamy soil, pH around 6-6.5.

Aphids and spider mites. Both can be washed off with a hard jet of water.

Direct sow starting in mid-May. Warm-weather crop. Best soil temperature is at least 21°C (70°F). Can have an earlier first harvest if you start seeds indoors. Beans do not love to be transplanted, so handle with care. In our experience, plants started from seeds caught up to the transplants very quickly and the end result was not that different.

Seeds will sprout in 6-10 days.

Apart from daily watering, your only care consists of spraying leaves with kelp fertilizer periodically to boost nutrient uptake.

Days to maturity
58 days

Warm, annual
