Our earliest green bean. Round to oval pods 6 to 8 inches long are tender and stringless. Very tolerant of hot temperatures and mildew tolerant as well. The crop matures over a short period of time, so you can complete your canning or freezing quickly. Buff mottled seed.

    I've grown Blue Lake Bush for many years. This fall I decided to grow a late planting of beans, but I didn't have enough time for Blue Lake before the 1st frost, so I tried Contender since the maturity date is less than 50 days. I've liked the Contender so much that I think I may switch over to Contender as my main bean. They remind me of Blue Lake in a lot of ways, but earlier maturing. They taste great, and I like that the beans come mostly at once, so the harvest period isn't streatched out too long. I will definitely plant Contender next year.
