Blue Lake Pole Bean

Our Very Best Canner

Sets pods from the base to the top of the vine—plenty for canning! Straight, smooth 6-in. pods are crisp and stringless at all stages, never limp. They cook up tender, with full-bodied Blue Lake flavor. 63 DAYS.

Seed counts: A 2-oz. packet of snap bean seeds (bush and pole) contains about 150 seeds and sows a 25-ft. row.
