Blue Lake Pole Bean is the climbing version of the popular Blue Lake Bush Bean. This open-pollinated bean variety can grow as tall as 7' and will set pods from the bottom of the plant to the top of the vines. The pods are stringless and average 5-6" long. This is a great variety for canning to preserve the harvest. Our Hortonova Trellis Netting works great for trellising these beans and other pole bean varieties.


Growing Information

Beans should be planted in spring after the last frost has occurred. Beans will germinate best once soil temps have reached 65 F or higher. Optimal germination temperature is around 77 F. Seeds can require 8 to 16 days to germinate, depending on the soil temperature. For continual production, succession plant every couple of weeks throughout the spring and early summer. Plants will drop blooms or cease production in the heat of summer. Subsequent succession plantings may be made in late summer/fall, as long as enough time is permitted before the first frost date.

Direct seeding is recommended. Blue Lake Pole Bean can be easily planted with a walk-behind planter like our Hoss Garden Seeder. We suggest using the #6 plate and modifying the hole size to fit the variety being planted. Beans can be planted relatively thick along the row and thinned to the desired spacing. To maximize garden space, consider using double-row spacing. For double-row spacing, rows may be planted as close as 6″ apart with 3′ spacing between double rows. For single row spacing, 2′ to 3′ spacing is recommended.

Great Producers

Blue Lakes produce and can better than any other green bean specie here in North Central Eastern Washington. Great Seeds!

Great Tasting & Prolific Green Bean

My seeds were packed for 2021 (I just got around to planting them this September 2023), but the germination was awesome. They have climbed to the top of my arched trellis and have been consistently producing loads of delicious beans! This is the first time I've planted a pole bean - I've always planted bush beans in the past - I'll be planing these Blue Lake Pole Beans every year from now on! Thank you, Hoss!
