Bush beans are determinate plants, meaning harvest will last for a certain amount of time and then the plants will dwindle. They are prolific producers and my harvest lasted about two and a half months. The plump pods are 5 ½ to 6 ½ inches long.
When picked young, they are stringless. They have excellent flavor and are one of the best beans for freezing, pickling, and canning.
Keep soil moist but not soggy, and avoid watering the foliage. Beans produce their own nitrogren, and fertilizer is not needed if planted in rich soil.
They will mature in 50 to 60 days. For a continuous harvest, sow new plants every two weeks up to 60 days before first fall frost.
This bean was developed in 1961 from the Pole Blue Lake.
