Blue Lakes 274 beans have a dark green, cylindrical, stringless, firm, and plump pod. The pod contains tiny pale green to white edible seeds. The bean's flavor is distinctively mild, subtle and sweet, with a crisp-tender texture. Plants produce an abundant crop of pods that can reach 6 to 7 inches in length. Kept picked, plants will produce all season long.
Blue Lake beans received their given name as they were originally cultivated in the early part of the 20th century in the Blue Lake District near Ukiah, California. They were brought to Oregon in 1923 where they were extensively researched, resulting in the development of the new string-less bean varieties. The first commercial stringless Blue Lake bean variety was developed by Asgrow Company in 1962.
