Named after a lake in California, this one is the classic "green bean" everybody loves. Sunset magazine staged a taste test back in 1994 asking "Is Blue Lake still the best-tasting bean? And 4 out of their 5 tasters said enthusiastically, "Yes!" Blue Lake is still the champ today, and these seeds of the bush variety makes growing them super-simple.
When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant when all
danger of frost is past and the soil has warmed. For best results, loosen
soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake.
Firm soil over seed and keep moist. Plant bush types every 3 weeks.
Harvesting: Pick regularly when pods are 4-6"/10-15 cm, before sides bulge.
