Description

Dragon’s Tongue Wax Bush Bean - "A Beautiful Bean"

Long, creamy-yellow pods splashed with purple on compact, stock bushes, a unique heirloom butter bean from the Netherlands.  Remarkably good flavor, crisp, juicy, string-less flesh makes these great fresh. 

One of the best yielding and tastiest beans anywhere. Best used fresh, not particularly recommended for long storage or freezing. Also known as Langerie Wax Bean.

History

Originally cultivated in Central America, from Mexico to Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. The smaller beans are thought to have been cultivated in Mexico as long as 7,000 years ago, while the larger beans were cultivated in Peru starting 8,000 years ago. High in protein, easy to grow, dry and cook, they have sustained mankind for millennia.

Uses

Snap

Harvest

For Snap Beans, wait until they are about pencil size, but harvest before the beans inside the pods become lumpy. Snap beans, are snapped, strings removed and eaten fresh or cooked.

For Fresh Shell Beans, let the seeds in the pods get good and fat. You shell/remove the green beans from the pod and they are eaten fresh or cooked.

For Dried Beans, let the pods get brown and dry on the plant. Pick them before they can split open and spread out to finish drying. Remove from dried pods and store. Dried beans are usually soaked and cooked.

    One of my favorites

    Dragons are one of my family's favorite beans for fresh eating. The flavor is great. I sow a small row of them every 3 weeks to keep a fresh supply all summer long. They get mushy if you freeze or can them.
