Marfax Beans



Marfax Beans grow on a bush-type bean plant that grows up to 14 inches (36 cm) tall, 80 to 85 days from seed.

It delivers high yields, even in cool weather and short growing seasons.

The plant produces white blossoms, then pods 4 inches (10 cm) long by 1/2 inch (1 cm) wide.

The beans inside are .4 inches (1 cm) long by 1/3 inch (85 mm) wide, and will be a glossy mustard gold or brownish gold.

Marfax Beans are oval and plump, and have good flavour for use in soup, and for baked beans.
