Product Overview

Phaseolus vulgaris

Wowùfresh beans in only 50 days! Delicious, intense flavor and tenderness. So easy to grow. A real knock out!

Why is this bean called 'Contender'? Because it vies for the number one spot among beans! And rightly it should; a stringless favorite since 1949, it produces after only 50 days from sowing, and tolerates heat and powdery mildew where other varieties suffer. Disease resistant.

Variety Info

6"–8" long, round-oval, slightly curved pods. Also resistant to common bean mosaic virus.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
