The pods are curved, about five to seven inches long, round-oval in cross section, and golden-yellow in color. Excellent heavy yielding, home garden, all-purpose type, that is great fresh, canned, or frozen. As the name hints, the seeds are black.
Originally developed from a cross between 'Improved Black Wax' and 'Black Eyed Wax', 'Pencil Pod Black Wax' was introduced in 1900. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 80 seeds.
