Blue Lake 274 Bush Bean (53 days)

Phaseolus vulgaris

 

This variety was introduced in 1962 and was considered quite a breakthrough as it combined the exceptional flavor of the renowned Blue Lake pole bean with a bush habit. Today, over 25% of bush green bean sales are this one variety. Pods are 6” long & straight with small white seeds. Plants are 18” tall & yields are dependably heavy.  Disease resistance-Bean Mosiac Virus and Halo Blight

150 seeds

 

PLANTING

Germination:  4-10 days

Germination Temperature:  Optimum soil temperatures 70-85 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing:  After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60 degrees F. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 60 degrees results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row 

Harvest:  Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually every 2-3 days to prolong production.

Tips:  Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding  inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants.

Pine Tree All The Way!

I love Pine Tree seeds. Germination rates are so high, I rarely have now-shows. If your ground is good, and your planting conditions are good, then their seeds will grow.
