    "Rustproof Golden Wax" Bush/Snap/Wax. 50 days to snap pods which are straight, golden yellow, stringless, brittle, broad, flat-oval, 5 - 5 1/2" long. Very resistant to bean rust. There have been many forms of Golden Wax. It is one of the oldest known of the wax podded beans. The original Golden Wax was released around 1871. Rustproof has also been associated with Topnotch Golden Wax however the seed shape of this one is observably different than Topnotch.

    @Bluejay77

    the Dry Rustproof Golden Wax are not
    only different in seed shape they are
    also different in seed marking and the pod
    from Top Notch.

    how are they for flavor?

    i'm very happy with the Top Notch beans. i've tried some others and didn't like them as well in comparison (cherokee wax was one of them) and none were as productive or as good.

    I'm not sure if this is the same Refugee bean on that antique can. Was probably just Refugee. There has been a whole bunch of beans that have carried the Refugee name as part of their name.

    I went back in this thread and found the post. It was post #208 on page 21. The can was market just Refugee. So far I have shown you 3 beans with Refugee in their name and there is more of them yet to come.

    @Bluejay77

    also interesting how your White Lion Off Type looks very similar to the pink patterned pinto back on page 38ish except for the darker ring around the hilum.

    My pole bean patch was a quarter of a mile away from my house. I had half of a shared garden space with one of my neighbors. The plot was 32 feet wide by 40 feet long. I had a 16 x 40 section.

    Three 40 foot rows of pole beans this year in this Harwood Nursery plot. First Bean is "Witzenhausen" Very pretty bean and very productive pole bean. I bought this one from DeaFlora seeds in Germany in 2013. This year Witzenhausen threw off one off type. The red speckling is definitely a different shade and there is not as much area of white on the off type seed.
