Bush Contender Snap Bean
Bush Contender Snap Bean –
The Bush Contender Snap Bean, ‘Phaseolus vulgaris’, is the earliest bean we could find. The Contender is tasty, stringless, and it takes only 40 days from sowing to harvest.
You just won’t find an earlier bean. Bush Contender will tolerate hot temperatures and mildew and is very productive.
Like other snap beans, Bush Contender is stringless and excellent cooked or eaten right out of the garden.
The beans are 6 inches long, thick, and slightly curved. The plants are 12 to 20 inches tall.
Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly.
This is when the seeds have just begun to form.
Bush Contender Snap Bean Planting instructions:
- Plant after the last average frost date.
- Snap beans prefer rich, organic, and well drained soil.
