Yellow Wax beans have a pale cornflower colored, stringless pod with a translucent yellow flesh that clings tightly to its petit lime green legumes inside its shell. The label "wax" may seem less inviting in its implications, as yellow bean varieties actually have either a matte or satin finish with nearly a faint hint of wax in their texture. Yellow Wax beans, ideally harvested young, are crisp, succulent and tender firm, with mellow grassy sweet and nutty flavors.
Yellow Wax beans are available year-round with a peak season ranging from mid-summer to early fall.
Yellow Wax beans are a member of the Fabaceae family, along with common beans, pulses and peas. "Yellow Wax" is a given name to dozens of wax bush bean varieties that individually simply happen to have different shades of yellow in appearance and variance in waxiness depending on the cultivar. Yellow Wax beans are nearly identical to Green beans in all aspects except for color. One of the most famous heritage Yellow Wax bean varieties is the Beurre De Rocquencourt Bush Wax bean, named for the rich farming region, Rocquencourt, France. It is the single most responsible bean for catalysing the popularity of the Wax bean within the 20th century.

Yellow Wax beans can be utilized in the same fashion as French beans, classic Green beans and Purple beans. They do, however, stand out, compared to other beans, in salads and alongside several companion ingredients. Yellow Wax beans are incredible blanched in salads with a classic vinaigrette, indulged with rich sauces such as brown butter and bécahmel and they pair well with poached lobster, tuna, roasted pork belly, new potatoes, shallots and herbs such as Italian parsley, chervil and tarragon. Store fresh Yellow Wax beans in the refrigerator in a sealed container. Just prior to cooking, rinse and remove tips from stem end.
Yellow Wax beans' ancestors are native to Central and South America. Many Yellow Wax bean varieties, though, were first introduced to their respective culinary regions from Algeria. The Algerian Wax bean is responsible for the development of several varieties of Wax beans from the 18th to the 20th Century. It is considered the oldest known cultivar still in production. The Yellow Wax beans' commercial exposure as a common garden vegetable is still growing as the green bean remains the most popular and perhaps obvious choice for both home growers and farmers.
