How Many Bean Seeds Can I Save From a Bush Bean Plant?

I'd like to save some seeds from both Blue Lake and Dragon Tongue beans. I can save plants with beans never picked. If I want 200 seeds from each group, how many plants I need to save?

The Blue Lake is smaller, but a heavy producer. The Dragon Tongue is taller, but not as productive as the Blue Lake.

I'm going to keep the plants to dry stage and save the seeds for next year.
