Blue Lake pole bean seeds produce pods that are straight, stringless and unusually smooth, with a stronger flavour than the bush variety. Plants bear lots of dark green pods that are round to oval, tender and meaty, 15-18cm (6-7") long. Blue Lake has a very long harvest window, and will keep producing new pods as long as the vines are kept picked. Provide a pole or trellis for this tall vine to grow up. This variety is hugely popular for its productivity in the Prairies and other short season growing regions.

TIPS: If beans flower but do not set pods, the cause can be a zinc deficiency. Try using a foliar-spray with kelp extract or a micro-nutrient foliar spray that contains zinc!
