Contender Bush Bean Seeds
Why is this bean called ‘Contender’? Because it vies for the number one spot among beans! And rightly it should – producing after only 50 days from sowing, and tolerating heat and mildew where other varieties suffer. Contender is stringless, excellent cooked or eaten right from the garden.

Name: Bush Beans ‘Contender’
Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris ‘Contender’
Days to Maturity: 50
When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is 70º‒85ºF.
Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold stem with one hand and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. Harvesting early and often will stimulate flower production for more beans.
