Seeds 'N Such has a variety of the Blue Lake Pole Bean that sounds like a huge improvement over the FM-1 variety that I currently grow. One part of the description that caught my eye is that they have, "very little foliage makes it easy to pick". The pole beans had so much foliage this year that I had a hard time finding all of the beans, so less foliage sounds ideal. I also noticed that they recommend 2" spacing instead of the 6" spacing for the FM-1 variety, which means more beans in less space. I like that.

I may try a package of them this year to see if they perform as well as advertised.

"This bean is a completely stringless improvement on the old Blue Lake FM-1, with same rich, distinctive flavor. Our best canning variety. Very little foliage makes it easy to pick. Vigorous vines profusely produce loads pods that extend out from the vine. White seeded."

I didn't know there was an FM1 variety of pole Blue Lake. Is it a hybrid? Can you save the seeds? Less foliage must mean that what leaves there are must be proficient at making energy. You will followup next summer with how you like them? Very Happy

I did try 274 which is a bush bean, but now only grow the pole bean variety. Plain old Blue Lake pole.

It is a cross between Kentucky Wonder and the Blue Lake beans. From the official description of the bean:

"Open Pollinated Heirloom. Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year."
