60 days. This dark-green bean has been a standard for over 40 years. The bush plants set heavy yields of flavorful pods that are tender and crisp. Developed in 1961 from the Pole Blue Lake.

What are the pros? Plentiful

What are the cons? They DON'T pick themselves!

Review:

For the home canner, this is a go to bean! NO STRINGS! Easy to grow, easy to pick! If you have a row or two of these beans you can get enough beans for a canner or two every 3 to 5 days! Great bean! They taste great too! When you have all you need for yourself, there's still plenty to sell or give to friends and family!

Review:

This variety of bean was always a staple in my grandmother's and mother's gardens. And until the last couple of years was a staple in mine. But then I decided to branch out and try some other varieties. That little experiment just proved the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Going back to the Blue Lake beans this year.

What are the pros? Highly productive

What are the cons? Bugs got this year

Review:

I always grow these beans and plant rows every three weeks so we have beans from June through September. This year some sort of bug attacked the leaves and laced them so badly they didn't produce. Reading someone else's review showed me that I wasn't the only one. So sad and disappointing. Luckily I grew some pole beans. But, I will plant next year.

Review:

I'm a newbie gardener. This is my first year to grow a vegetable garden. I live in the city, so have limited space. I planted these is a raised bed along with tomatoes and zucchini. I probably planted this bed too close, but I didn't have good luck in this raised bed, but I did with my other two. At any rate, the beans are very good - not tough, no strings. I picked every day. I didn't get a whole lot - probably due to being too crowded. They plants that grew by the zucchini produced very little, again, too close I think. Next year I will space things out more, and either skip zucchini, or find a small variety.

What are the pros? Great Germ &Growth, prolific!

What are the cons? Not Disease/Pest resistant

Review:

These were the top producer for a few weeks. Germinated really well, lots of big (but not requiring staking) happy plants with huge amounts of beans popping out everywhere. Then the Mexican Bean Beetles struck. They succumbed almost immediately. The infestation was swift and devastating; being in a community garden I had no time to attempt any sort of rescue. They lose only a star here because I feel that with more time I could have saved them. Terribly disappointing because the beans were delicious! everyone loved them. They didn't last in the fridge or freezer. I attempted a fall harvest but dry conditions and not enough watering on my part meant only a few germinated and none survived. Definitely happier in the cool spring!
