It may be hard to believe, but we actually improved the flavor and tenderness of one of your favorite beans and ended up with a virtually fiber-free bean that is a heavy producer over a long season, and is excellent fresh or frozen. Blue Lake Bush’s plentiful harvest begins in about 58 days after planting in the garden. We find the beans to be at their peak when 6.5 in. (16.5 cm) long. Enjoy a bountiful and extended harvest by picking daily.
