Blue Lake, Wright Strain Certified Naturally Grown Seed

70 days — This is an old strain of the original 'Blue Lake' pole beans that have been maintained by local farmer friends of ours our friends since the 1950s, Ben and Alice Wright of Liberal, Oregon. It was once the standard green bean variety grown extensively on production farms in this area.

Food production here in the fertile soils of the Willamette Valley was once one of a primary industry of Oregon. 'Blue Lake' beans were bred for the canning and fresh-frozen industry. These pole-types were the preferred varieties until the cost of labor to hand pick soared and the invention of mechanical harvesters changed planting trends to bush-type beans.

Its pods are stringless when young and tender, dark green, round, tasty, and reach about six inches. They can be enjoyed fresh as snap beans, canned, frozen or dried. The flavor and texture is outstanding. The plants are vigorous, climb well, and are very productive. Each packet contains one ounce, which is about 100 seeds.

Excellent pole bean!
I'm a fairly new gardener so I haven't had much experience, but these were my first pole beans and they did great! They've been growing well and even if I leave them unpicked for a few days too many, they still taste great raw right off the vine. I recently harvested enough for our dinner and steamed them with some dill and it was great!

Best green bean ever
This is without a doubt the best green bean we have ever grown, and we've tried quite a few varieties! Productive, vigorous, and delicious. We are not always great about harvesting our beans frequently enough, and in the past we've had trouble with our beans getting tough when we let them get over-mature - these beans were tender and tasty even when old and huge! Definitely our go-to variety from now on.

Blue Lake pole beans
This is a great variety of snap bean. I planted them for the first time this year and had a bountiful and very tasty crop. If you like green beans this variety should be on your short list.
