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? Easy to plant, easy to can.

What are the cons? Hmmmm. No dislikes

Review:

I have always loved this bean but seemed to me they were Extra good this year. Canned lots and ate lots fresh. I am still harvesting some in Sept. Plus, we like to shell them when the pod starts drying and cook them with salt and pepper.

What are the pros? Easy to grow & produces well

What are the cons? none

Review:

I planted three 12 ft size rows of these hoping for a good crop to can and freeze for our family. They germinated quickly and the production was amazing. I was not disappointed! These beans were quite tasty and not stringy at all (my entire family enjoyed them!) I froze several bags and ran out of freezer space so began canning several pints. I am thrilled with the production and hope to plant these again next year.

What are the pros? Grows well, high germination

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted the exact same type beans from 2 different companies, side by side. Baker Creek plants are a darker green and are now blooming. The others are light green, smaller, with no blooms. And the germination rate was higher for Baker Creek. In the past I thought all seeds are equal...now I know that, at least in this instance, that's not true.

Germination finicky
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Can plant closely

What are the cons? Bad germination rate

Review:

This plant is okay. It tastes good, is easy to grow, and I like how I can plant the plants more closely. The bad thing was the germination rate. I succession plant and started planting in March. The germination rate of this type has been about 50%. I've bought the Blue Lake bush beans from the hardware store that had better rates with germination. I'm not sure if I would plant this type from Baker Creek again. It might just be because the weather this year has also been finicky.

The best bush bean
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Prolific, hardy, good flavor

What are the cons? Critters like them too.

Review:

This is by far the most prolific bean, bush or climbing, that I have grown, easily producing 3-4 times as many beans as some other varieties. It has firm flesh and very good taste, raw, cooked, or frozen then cooked. Not as sweet as tendergreens but still very good. I've experimented with other green bush bean varieties, but this year, the majority of the plants in my city lot garden will be blue lake.
