Blue Lake 274

58 days — 'Blue Lake 274' is a high yielding, bush version of the popular old climbing-type 'Blue Lake' green beans. They perform well, even in adverse weather. The pods develop to 5½ to 6½ inches in length. 'Blue Lake 274' is a canner's favorite as the variety tends to mature its heavy crop all at once. Stagger your plantings for a longer harvest period.

Bred by the Asgrow Seed Company, 'Blue Lake 274' was introduced in 1964. It is resistant to Common Mosaic, Bean Virus 1, and New York 15. Each ounce is approximately 90 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Beans prefer well-drained, rich soil in a sunny location. Make sure that you keep them well watered in the summer heat. Don’t bother trying to get an early start with beans – you’ll waste a lot of seed! Beans are tender and you should not plant them until all danger of frost has passed and the soil remains above 65ºF.

Sow seeds 1½ inches deep, every two to three inches. Bush-type beans do not require support.

Pick the pods while young as they are more tender and succulent and less likely to be stringy.
