Contender Bean Seeds are garden staples and old-time favorites, great for kids’ gardens and known to be one of the first to begin producing. Early harvest begins only 40 days after planting. This is a heavy producer of 6-8″ (15-20 cm) stringless, meaty pods on 12-18″ (30-45 cm) sturdy, bush-type plants. Excellent for freezing and canning or fresh right out of the garden.
Heirloom Beans enrich the soil with nitrogen for heavy nitrogen users like corn and grains. Plant beans with carrots, celery, chards, corn, eggplant, peas, potatoes, brassica (mustard family), beets, radishes, strawberries and cucumbers. Keep your beans away from alliums.
