California Wonder Pepper - 1928 (according to Southern Exposure Seed Company)

Blue Lake Bean -

Couldn't find an exact date, but an April 1996 article in Sunset Magazine by Lauren Swezey, entitled Is 'Blue Lake' still the best bean? notes:

"In the early part of this century [20th century], 'Blue Lake' was the bean grown for canning in the Blue Lake District near Ukiah, California. In 1923, this variety arrived in Oregon, where much of the bean research has since been done."
