Phaseolus vulgaris

LARGE PACKET

66 Days. Some say pole beans have better flavor than bush beans. Blue Lake would support that suggestion. Outstanding flavor combined with high yields make growing these vigorous 5'–6' vines worth the time. Excellent canned, frozen, or eaten fresh. White seeded, mosaic resistant.
This packet sows up to 96 ft. or 24, 4' diameter teepees. See inside for instructions on how to build a bean teepee

Days to Emerge:
6 - 12 days

Seed Depth:
1"

Seed Spacing:
1 seed every
6"

Row Spacing:
3'

Thinning:
Not required


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is 70º‒85ºF. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, sow as recommended above but skip the heat of summer, as daytime temperatures consistently above 90ºF will cause bean flowers to drop off (no bean formation).

When to start inside: Not recommended; does not transplant well.

Harvesting Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold stem with one hand and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. Harvesting early and often will stimulate flower production for more beans. At season’s end, plants are great compost material if they are disease-free.
