Description More Information
Blue Lake Pole Beans can be traced back to 1923, and have been popular for generations since! Good for hand-picking for market, this pole variety is the predecessor of the popular bush variety that shares the same name.

Possibly the best green bean in the world! Average: 62 days

Detailed planting instructions:

Beans are generally direct seeded in the garden. The most important point about growing green beans is not to plant them too early. They will rot in cool, damp soil. To get an earlier start, you can put down black plastic to warm the soil.

When bush beans begin producing they often come in all at once. Staggered planting, every 2 weeks, will keep your bush beans going longer. Beans like a moderately rich soil with a slightly acidic pH of about 6.0 to 6.2.

They prefer a loose, moist soil. Plant after all danger of frost is past.

Pole beans will need some type of support to grow on. Be sure the trellis, teepee, fence or whatever is in place before you seed. Plant seeds at a rate of about 3-6 seeds per teepee or every 6 inches apart.


Harvesting beans is an ongoing process. You can start to harvest anytime, but gardeners usually wait until the beans begin to firm up and can be snapped. They are generally about as think as a pencil then. Don’t wait too long, because beans can become overgrown and tough almost overnight. Harvest by gently pulling each bean from the vine or by snapping off the vine end, if you are going to be using the beans right away.


It is a suggested that you earmark a couple of plants at the beginning of the season for seed saving. Don’t pick ANY pods from them to eat - just pick the crisp brown pods at the end of the season. Don’t feed them, or water them unless it is very dry - this can encourage leafy growth rather than pod development. There is no point in picking green pods as the seeds are not mature enough at this stage.

Very good August 18, 2014
Reviewer: Sam :) from Missouri  
Start in the ground and they sported within 3 days! They are very vigorous climbers and after about a month are about foot to two foot tall. Planted these late but they are sure don't to act like it.

All but two plants sprouted. June 22, 2014
Reviewer: Rick Gargurevich from Georgetown, CA United States  
So far so good. You get way more seeds for $1.50 than you do at the store for $2. I'm buying all my seed from you from now on.

Great product April 1, 2014
Reviewer: Timothy Smith from Oswego, IL United States  
I've been using Patriot Supply for two years now and love there seeds. The success rate is quite good. I started my seeds on 3/26 and have sprouts already today, 4/1. I'm not going to review each seed here today but am very pleased with the stock I've received. I was surprised to learn (I order online ) they are in Muncie Indiana, a town I travel to for business.I asked some of the locals if they knew of Patriot and to give me feedback, It was all positive. My next trip into Muncie I will stop by and check out the store.
