Description

Bean - Blue Lake Bush - Phaseolus vulgaris

Tender Annual Bush. This is an excellent freezing and canning snap bean. The plant bears 5" long oval pods. Blue Lake is a heavy yielder, holds its condition well, and remains stringless and tender over a long period of time. Great flavor.

Did You Know? Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod breaks cleanly in half.

Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, moderately at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65°F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks' time. For best flavor, harvest the pods when they reach 1/2" in diameter regardless of their length.

Great germination

Not picking them yet, but by the look of the plants a healthy productive yield is in our future.

Fast, accurate shipping. Expecting this to be as good as previous order

I ordered seed on this round because I had such a good experience with my bare root tree order. I have not yet had the chance to plant all the seeds I bought, as some are for my fall garden. I love the Blue Lake Bush variety of beans; they are just what I remember growing up with. But to get them certified organic really puts my mind at ease about my food source. I have had good experiences with this company, and will buy again from them when I need additional seeds.

My Favorite Bean

Blue Lake Bush Beans are my favorite bean. I love other beans too but Blue Lakes are the first bean I choose for my garden. It has a classic green bean flavor. The beans are meaty and buttery and tender, and taste a little like canned beans but way, way, way better. Although Blue Lake Beans also come in a tall, vining variety, I prefer the bush form because all the beans ripen at once so I have enough for a huge serving for dinner. In addition, I don\'t have to stake them. After a couple of generous pickings, I tear the plants out and replant.

Strong, Consistent Producer

This is a solid performer. It has high, consistent yields and I've never had a disease problem with them. They taste great, are nice and tender, and freeze really well. They are great in a short season area like mine and do well direct seeded.
