| Blue Lake FM-1K
66 Days — Food production here in the fertile soils of
the Willamette Valley was once one of a primary industry of
Oregon. Bred for canning and fresh-frozen packaging,
Blue Lake beans were one of the preferred varieties until the cost
to hand pick soared and the invention of mechanical harvesters changed planting trends to bush-type beans.
This is a BCMV resistant strain of the original 'Blue Lake' pole. Its pods are stringless when young and tender, dark green, round, tasty, and reach about six inches. They can be enjoyed fresh as snap or shell beans, canned, frozen or dried. The plants are vigorous, climb well, and are productive. About 95 seeds per ounce.
