The Instacart guide to yellow wax beans

About yellow wax beans

Yellow wax beans belong to the Fabaceae family, along with many other types of beans and peas. These beans have a stringless pod with a distinct yellow color. The beans inside are lime green. Though yellow wax beans are very similar to green beans, the flavor is slightly lighter and grassier, making them a summer favorite. Yellow wax beans also have thinner skin than their green counterparts.

These beans are bred to have less chlorophyll that provides the green color to traditional green beans. There are many varieties of yellow wax beans, all identifiable by their distinct hue. The best-known variety is the Beurre De Rocquencourt Bush Wax bean from France. 

Despite the name, wax beans do not have a waxy texture or appearance. They are typically matte or satiny. Yellow wax beans are harvested when they're young and crisp. They're at their peak during the early to mid-summer months.

Wax beans are also available canned, but you'll get the best flavor from fresh yellow wax beans. This is also the only way to purchase wax beans with that fresh crunch.
