(Bush). A productive heirloom wax bean named for Rocquencourt, France, a town in France’s rich farming country. Wax beans were introduced to France in the 1840’s from Algeria, and this variety is surely a descendant of those early beans. The bush plants set good yields early and produce well in most climates. These beans are favored by cooks for their fine-flavored pods that are a bright waxy-yellow in color. This variety was listed in Mother Earth News as a favorite of well-known writer William Woys Weaver.
