•Heirloom
•Non-GMO
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 3-12

Description:
These pole beans which can reach a height of 6 foot have been a favorite among Oregon farmers for generations. This reliable pole bean offers the high yield of a bush bean, but it easily climbs up poles, fences or trellises. Plus, it will yield much longer than a bush bean—right up to frost!


Health Benefits:
This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Protein, Vitamin A, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Iron, Phosphorus and Potassium, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Folate, Magnesium and Manganese.


Growing Instructions:
Plant Blue Lake pole bean seeds after the last frost, since these stingless pole beans are very sensitive to cold. Place the seeds 2" deep and 10" apart, allowing them to grow on a trellis or other vertical support as soon as they emerge from the soil. If using a teepee structure, plant them in groups of 5-6 plants per pole. Germination usually takes place in 14-20 days. For companion planting benefits, plant pole beans with corn; this provides natural support for both the vines and the corn stalks. Keep the soil moist to ensure healthy plants and a productive crop, taking care not to disturb the blossoms as they form. Mulch helps conserve moisture, control weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
