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.

I grew these as part of a Three Sister Garden. They grew slow at first because the corn over took them but as the corn started to die back they took off. They made great young green beans for canning and a ton of nice size white dry beans. I got truly amazing yields. Yielding more beans than corn and I had a great corn yield this year too.

Very tasty
This bean has excellent flavor and it's very prolific. I have an eight foot fence around my garden and this topped that fence easily, so be prepared to bring out the big bean poles. It does attract Japanese beetles however.
