Fresh Snap eating in 55 days then continues to a delicious dry bean.
A determinate green snap bean, relatively early-maturing, with very long, straight pods that are exceptionally tender and sweet. This variety was developed at Oregon State by vegetable plant breeder Jim Myers, particularly for the fresh market grower. The 4" pods maintain good eating quality for a long period on the plant, allowing for a wide picking window. 55 days to fresh snap stage. OS Blues is a heavy producer of tender pods with unsurpassed staying power. This refined, high-yielding bush bean has great tenderness and rich flavor. This is the bean that our 101-year-old mother found especially delicious. Even at a larger size, when any other bean would be woody and tough, this one is still delightfully crisp and yummy.
