stringy yellow beans

Our family loves Yellow Beans. I grew them last year and they seemed to do very well, but we found then to be stringy when we ate them. Did I pick them too late or too soon, or something else. Please help I want to grow them this year and enjoy.

RE: stringy yellow beans

More than likely it was the variety you grew. Was it a bush bean? or a pole variety? I like Neckargold quite a bit for a pole yellow bean.


RE: stringy yellow beans

Ditto on Fusion's comments. Some wax beans I've grown develop strings as they ripen, while others remain stringless. I've only grown pole varieties, though. "Goldmarie" is another one which remains stringless for a long time.

RE: stringy yellow beans

I grew Golden Wax (bush). This year will try a couple other varieties
I hope I can find Neckargold and Goldmarie


RE: stringy yellow beans

I personally grow Cherokee Wax(bush) and they have been stringless and quite productive for me.
