Pole Bean Versus Bush Beans

debster65 added on August 6, 2014 | Answered

I planted what said at the store 'Blue Lake bush bean' but turns out they are pole beans. Very viney and runners everywhere. I didn't pole or stake or string these not knowing until now. You can't even walk through the rows. It's just all intertwined everywhere. Into about 58 days now and no blossoms yet. Will they still produce and how long before blossoms?

This article discusses causes and cures for beans' not flowering.
However, doing some research on blue lake bush beans, I found that they are an old hybrid, developed from blue lake pole beans, and that they have been around so long they're starting to revert to the wild forms. If you don't get anything form them, try a different variety next year.
