Bean, Blue Lake Bush (Phaseolus vulgaris) Seeds, organic
$2.45 – $19.10
Family: Legume (Fabacea)
Annual. 55 days.
Probably the epitome of open-pollinated bush green beans, Blue Lake is fast to make beans and slow to make strings. The most vigorous bean we’ve ever grown, germ took only 4 days in our trials and it seemed like every bean came up and prospered. This particular bean is well known to produce sweet, round in cross section, blue-green beanpods, 6 to 7 inches long on a self-supporting bush to 15 inches tall. Excellent choice for fresh harvest, market garden and home garden. Solid texture makes them an excellent choice for freezing and canning, as well. An old-time favorite that has never let us down.
~300 seeds per 100 g bag.
Certified Organically Grown
Admin Richo Cech –
As you know green beans are best harvested when young. I grew exactly four of these plants in the family vegetable garden and it kept us in green beans for weeks, picked young and tender. Harvesting these beans is a two-handed affair, I found, one hand to support the stem, one hand to pull off the beans. Lacking support, the stem tends to break off near ground level. waa!

When is it best to plant these and can they grow in a pot?
