Blue Lake 274

58 days — A high yielding, bush version of the popular old climbing-type 'Blue Lake' green beans. Does well even in adverse weather. The pods develop to 5˝ to 6˝ inches in length. 'Blue Lake 274' is a canner's favorite as the variety tends to mature its heavy crop all at once.

Bred and released in 1964 by the Asgrow Seed Company. It is resistant to Common Mosaic, Bean Virus 1, and New York 15. Each ounce is approximately 90 seeds.

Fantastic Green Beans!
These beans are great. I was very impressed at the amount of food produced from such a small planting area. I direct sowed these in early/mid May. I would say I had about 90-95% germination. I planted two rows about six feet long, spaced about six inches. My rows were about twelve inches apart. I will tell you right now this was crowded. But they did well and served to support each other. Next time I will give a little more space to see if this will make even more beans. Overall I would estimate that I gathered 20-ish pounds of green beans from twelve square feet of garden space. I will at least double my planting this coming year. we have pickled green beans and frozen green beans for days ... This will be a favorite in my garden every year I expect.

I recommend these beans!
I have grown this particular variety here in north central Kentucky for the last four years and have used seeds that are as old as three years. I always get really good results with this bean, and last year's production was absolutely outstanding. The vines were so productive, with not too much special care, that we got at least five harvests before wearing the vines out. There were two plantings lasting well into late summer. I recommend these beans!

A Consistent Winner
This strain produced well into October with huge, tender pods. It's a great one!

I love these beans and grow them every year.
I love these beans and grow them every year. They have never disappointed me, and they give and give and give till you think 'Oh please stop with the beans already'. Mixed with the Tendergreen Bush Beans they make a lovely row and can up beautifully. They also pickle real well.

Got lucky with half
This was our first go at beans. We tried to grow them in a few different areas. They did great in our full sun veggie garden and we were able to harvest so many over a month span. The beans that I planted in a container grew but hardly produced a pod. The ones along my deck did so so. I was able to pick a few off each of those plants. What we ate tasted great and so I'll be ordering this type again for 2014.
