The snap bean (or green bean) is eaten pod and all and is one vegetable that tastes significantly better when grown at home rather than bought at the grocery store. 'Blue Lake 274' produces a very large crop of round, 6" pods all at once on 16"–18" tall, bushy plants that are disease resistant; beans are stringless when picked young. Excellent flavor, one of the best for freezing. A good container variety.
