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.

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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are great beans. I planted them alongside Dragon Tongue and was so pleased. Both beans are quite prolific. These beans taste great and are perfect for canning. I am in zone 7a and had no problems growing these beans. I have already bought 4 more packets of seeds!!

Flavorful and versatile
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

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.

We found our bean
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

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!

Blue Lake beans for canning.
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

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!
