SKU: BbConOrg Category:

(a.k.a. Buff Valentine, Early Contender, Contender Stringless) (Phaseolus vulgaris)   40-55 days.     Organic Snap Bean    Earlier than most beans and very productive, this popular Organic variety was introduced in 1949. The Organic Contender Heirloom Bush Green Bean is great for cool, short-season climates, but also does well in heat, well adapted to varying growing conditions. Dark green 12-20″ Organic Contender plants set forth good yields of med-green 6-8″ pods, very flavorful. High in vitamin A, B, and C. Resistant to BCMV, NY15, and GP.

Planting Instructions for Organic Contender Bean Seeds

Sow Heirloom / Open Pollinated beans 1-2″ deep, 2-6″ apart, in rows 18-36″ apart, in full sun after danger of frost. Soaking Contender bean seeds in water 1-2 hours before planting speeds germination. Contender germination occurs in 4-16 days in soil 60-85°F. Provide support for heirloom pole bean varieties. For heirloom Contender snap beans, harvest when beans are 3-6″ long. For dry beans, leave pods on plants until pods are dry, brown, and crisp, and beans are hard and rattle in pod, if more drying is needed when danger of frost has arrived, pick pods or pull entire plant and hang upside down to dry further.

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
