53-58 day. With nice yields of long, straight, green pods, Blue Lake is one of the old standards, and for a good reason. Nice flavor, and great yields, making it still used as one of the main commercial varieties.
Heirloom is a minimum of 80 seeds per packet.

These are the best green beans I have ever eaten. I would recommend them to everyone. I planted them late, but still got a good yield. My only problem was that I didn't plant enough. This year will be different!

The past two years have seen temps climb into the low 100's here in North Mississippi. While other bean and cow-pea varieties floundered in the July and August heat, this green bean thrived drought conditions to go on and produce several bushels of beans. I am sure if it had ample rain they would have doubled their production. The description here at Annie's does the Blue Lake justice as they do produce ample quantities of beans that indeed have excellent flavor. Only stopped growing them as my local vendor stopped carrying the seeds. So I am re-ordering seeds for this next season in hopes of getting in two crops planted in 2013.
