Bean Climbing Blue Lake


GENUS: Phaseolus SPECIES: vulgaris


Heritage Status: New Zealand
Bio-Region of Origin: North Island
Number of Seeds: 20

Description: Sent to us originally by Shane Caley, these green snap, climber beans are traditionally well known beans that produce straight stringless dark green beans in bunches. They are excellent for freezing, better than Shiny Fardenlosa which was the bean most recently used as the freezing bean. The pods are round tender and meaty and 15-18 cm long. The plants are vigorous and yield heavily.

Planting Instructions: Scatter sow into seed trays. Transplant when second leaves appear at 10 cm spacing under trellis. This will avoid problems with birds, slugs, snails, and rotting in cold ground.
