Description

Bean - Contender - Phaseolus vulgaris

Tender Annual Bush. This highly productive, stringless, snap bush bean is great fresh from the garden, frozen, or canned. A very early variety, Contender beans grow on medium-sized plants with 6"-8" pods. The beans are medium-green in color and round-oval in shape. The plant is tolerant of hot weather and mildew.

Did You Know? Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod breaks cleanly in half.

Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, medium at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65°F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks' time. For best flavor, harvest the pods before they reach ?" in diameter regardless of their length.

Amazing plant!

Our contender beans started feeding us early in the summer and have continued producing beans week after week. Just when I think they are going to stop they surprise me and have yet more beans on them. They taste great, too. Awesome plant and I am definitely planting more next summer. Highly recommend!
