We took the best qualities of Blue Lake 274 and made a bean with more flavor and tenderness. Blue Lake 47 is upright and has medium-thick pods that are plump, tasty and at their flavorful peak when 6" long. Pick them daily to enjoy a bountiful and extended harvest. No trellis or poles are required for this bush type bean.
Sow in average soil in full sun after danger of frost, spring to early summer. In rows 18-30" apart, Sow seeds about 3" apart and cover with 2" of fine soil. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist.
How to Grow
Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days. Thin to stand about 6" apart when seedlings are 1-2" tall. Bush snap beans are ready for harvesting 45-60 days after sowing, while pole snap beans are ready in 60-80 days.
Pick when pods are firm and crisp with undeveloped or small seeds. Harvest very often to avoid tough, stringy pods and ensure plant productivity.
