Contender bush bean is our #1 selling bean for three years running now. There is a good reason for that–taste and reliability.
Contender is an early bush bean, that is reliable, heavy yielding, and considered by many to be the earliest producing bean at an amazing 40-45 days!
Contender bean is perfect for short, cool seasons where other beans may not perform well. This bean is mildew tolerant and still does well in hot weather.
Contender bean pods are 6″ long, stringless, medium-sized, and slightly curved. Plants grow 12-22″ tall. Contender beans are excellent straight from your garden or cooked.
