Some say pole beans have better flavor than bush beans. ‘Blue Lake FM-1K’ certainly would support that statement. Besides outstanding flavor, plants are high-yielding. Vigorous, 5’–8′ vines produce a bounty of 5″–7″, white-seeded beans that are excellent fresh, and also canned or frozen. Disease resistant.

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Days to Maturity: 66 days

Family: Fabaceae

Native: Mexico and South America

Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual

Plant Dimensions: 5’–8′ long vines

Variety Information: 5″–7″ long, ½” wide silvery-green pods; stringless when young, white seeds. ‘Blue Lake FM-1K’ is common bean mosaic virus resistant.

Type: Snap bean

Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold stem with one hand and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. Harvesting early and often will stimulate flower production for more beans. At season’s end, plants are great compost material if they are disease-free.
