52 days. Widely adapted. [Introduced in 1900. Developed from a cross of 'Improved Black Wax' and 'Black Eyed Wax'.] Stringless, curved, round pods, 5-1/2 to 6 in. long. Pods snap easily and make excellent fresh eating, or use as a canned bean. This black-seeded wax bean comes in early and produces for a long time. It is not as productive as modern wax beans but is dependable under high heat.
