Blue Lake beans have a dark green, cylindrical, stringless, firm, and plump pod. The pod contains tiny pale green to white edible seeds. The bean's flavor is distinctively mild, subtly grassy and sweet, with a crisp-tender texture. Blue Lake beans produce an abundant crop of pods that can reach 6 to 7 inches in length.
Blue Lake Beans are available in the spring through summer months.
Blue Lake beans are a bush type snap bean that was developed from the Blue Lake Pole bean. Since the mid-20th century, the Blue Lake bean has been considered the benchmark standard of green beans. Despite its origins as a canning bean, through continued development, it has evolved into a gourmet bean variety. Within the late 20th century, the Blue Lake bean had surpassed the Kentucky Wonder to be recognized as the premier gourmet bean. The signature Blue Lake bean is known in seed catalogs as Blue Lake 274 - the cultivar that made the Blue Lake bean famous.
