Blue Lake Pole Beans
‘Blue Lake’ Pole Bean vines can grow up to 10 feet long, requiring some kind of growing guidance, such as poles or strings. The slender pods are crisp and tender, growing up to 6 inches long. Outstanding flavor combined with high yields make growing these vigorous vines worth the time. Excellent canned, frozen, cooked, or eaten fresh. White seeded, mosaic resistant. Very easy to grow.

Name: Pole Beans ‘Blue Lake’
Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris ‘Blue Lake’
Days to Maturity: 66
When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is 70º‒85ºF.
Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold stem with one hand and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. Harvesting early and often will stimulate flower production for more beans.
