McKenzie Seed Gusto Italia – Bean Rocquencourt (Bush)


A yellow, French bush bean that is popular throughout Europe. Retains its superior buttery rich taste and crispness when cooked. A wonderful multipurpose bean that is great for fresh eating, cooked or canned. For best taste, harvest when pods are the thickness of a pencil. The more you pick, the more it produces. Extend the harvesting season by making smaller successive sowings every one or two weeks until mid-June instead of one large initial sowing at the beginning of the season.
