Botanical Interests® Heirloom Blue Lake 274 Bush Bean Seeds – 25 grams

$2.49

Out of stock

SKU: 19579 Category:

Phaseolus vulgaris

The snap bean (or green bean) is eaten pod and all and is one vegetable that tastes significantly better when grown at home rather than bought at the grocery store. ‘Blue Lake 274’ produces a very large crop of round, 6″ pods all at once on 16″–18″ tall, bushy plants that are disease resistant; beans are stringless when picked young.

This packet sows up to 16 feet.

58 days to maturity.

Outdoors: Sow 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F.
For Successive Sowings: Sow every 7-14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
Indoors: Not recommended.

What is an heirloom seed?

An heirloom variety is one that has been passed down from generation to generation. Generally, the variety must have been around for at least 50 years. They are open-pollinated, which means they have been exposed to natural pollination methods like insects or winds. They aren’t hybrids or genetically modified.
