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? flavorful, easy to grow.

What are the cons? Hard to pick; tears easily.

Review:

I have to agree with several of the other reviews. The only negative thing about this bean is trying to pick them. Pick gently as the plants are easily damaged. I will try narrow rows next year instead of the wide ones I usually do. These beans have great flavor, grow easily, don't need support (most of the time), great producers, and can nicely. Excellent steamed, saute'd, and they make a great fermented pickle Even with all of the rain we received this year (2018), the plants did great.

What are the pros? good producer, no string,

What are the cons? bush

Review:

We have tried several pole bean varieties that say they are stringless, but still have strings and require a lot of vertical space. This year, we reluctantly tried a bush bean and I'm glad we did! These beans have a wonderful flavor, are truly stringless and just keep on producing! As much as I dislike bush beans because of the challenge when picking them, I think we will stick to these!

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!

What are the pros? Easy grower

What are the cons? None

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.

So disappointed

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.
