Bean Garden, Blue Lake 274 Bush Organic is rated out of 5 by 2.Rated 5 out of 5 by Wryter from Productive and tasty in the desert Blue Lake 274 is highly productive and has great flavor. From a single, eight foot row in my raised bed garden I've harvested more than two pounds of beans so far, and it's only August 14. It, along with Contender, is rapidly becoming my favorite green beans. Kingman, AZ gets less than 8" rainfall per year, sits at 3500' and summertime highs are mostly above 100 with 109 or higher not uncommon. This is far from ideal bean growing circumstances and these Blue Lake 274's have done great and have earned a permanent spot in my garden. Next year I'll plant more and start canning them.Date published: 2014-08-15Rated 4 out of 5 by LICODI from Very Tasty to Me and Slugs Slugs ate my first crop of these and I had to re-seed,once the new ones got established they grew a little over a foot tall and wide, these could do with a little support. The beans did grow six inches long and tasted good raw or cooked. I just wish I grew enough to can.Date published: 2012-02-08
