  • Bean, Blue Lake 47 Bush is rated 4.0476 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant results Seeds were promptly shipped and received. Planted them the next day and within 3 days they were already sprouting. Purchased them along with some Kale, lettuce, and Nantes Carrots and saw sprouts from all 4 seeds within a few days. Very good seeds and looking forward to the final product. ***Side Note*** This is my first attempt at "urban" gardening, and thus far I have seen positive results.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings I've only been gardening 3 years, so still not quite sure what is typical. But, year one, I had Blue Lake 47 and they germinated and produced VERY well!. At the end of that season (2013), when Burpee put seeds on sale, I ordered seven or eight pkts of Blue Lake. I also ordered some Tenderpod. In 2014, I had some serious health issues, and didn't end up planting any beans. Beginning 2015, I planted 3 containers (I use 36 gallon plastic storage totes with drainage holes added) of Blue Lake and had lovely plants, not much produce though. About a month later, I planted 2 more containers Blue Lake, got exactly 6 plants (out of an entire envelope of seeds), but those 6 did produce much better. A couple of weeks later, I uprooted the first plants, fertilized and planted three containers Blue Lake again. From that envelope of seeds, I didn't get even one plant. The next week, I had harvested all the peas I'd planted, so cleaned out and fertilized those three containers. Planted those with Tenderpod and was overwhelmed with how quickly those plants grew. So I did another three containers Blue Lake, and got better results. So, is it "normal" to have so much variation between pkts of seed? The beans I've gotten from Blue Lake are very tasty and nice sized...they are "beautiful" beans! Will I plant Blue Lake 47 again? Yes, but if I have issues with them in 2016, probably not after that. I hope my comments are helpful to someone.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Germination with Blue Lake 47. Planted four rows of Blue Lake 47 this spring and had a very poor germination rate on all four rows. I planted two rows of the Triomphe de Farcy Bush bean at the same time and had extremely good germination. I have never had such a poor germination rate on a bush bean before.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Producer Grew the Blue Lake 47s for our first garden year. Had about 95% germination within a week and had a yield of 25 lbs out of 18 row-feet. Excellent flavor and the texture was pleasant.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Bush Bean The blue lake 47 bush bean has a very high germination rate. The plants grow quickly, produce a good amount of beans and can be crowded together without many drawbacks. I plant about 50 of these plants in a 4x8 foot raised garden and ended up with about 30 cans of beans that were vacuum sealed and put in the freezer. They lasted well into the winter and I planted more this year with the same results. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Abundant beans I planted Blue Lake beans this year as I knew they were reliable, and they have produced very well. The beans are tender and delicious and don't get fuzzy even if they are on the vine an extra day or 2.. Even in an unusually rainy summer the plants did not rot and we have had plenty of beans for 2 months now. It's September and I'm still picking beans and freezing them for the winter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectation. Very hardy. For harvest I put my hand under the bean leaves and grabbed cascade after cascade of beans. Best producer I've ever had.
