Looking for a delicious, healthy bush bean variety? Look no further than the Blue Lake 274! This organic and heirloom snap bean was released in 1962 and is still one of the most popular options on the market. The pods are long and dark green, with a string-less snap that’s perfect for fresh salads or steaming. Plus, this bean matures very quickly for an early harvest and is highly productive.  8g ~ 50 seeds.

Start seed outdoors after danger of frost has passed, usually 1-2 weeks after average last frost date. Inoculating seeds w/ nitrogen fixing-bacteria may increase yields in areas newly planted in beans. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Wait until air & soil has warmed up in the spring. Seeds planted in cold soil can germinate slowly and rot. Bush beans usually provide one large harvest, with a 2nd smaller harvest a few weeks later. Can be planted again in mid-late summer for an autumn harvest.
