Contender Bush Beans - Your Survival Garden Essential

About Contender Bush Beans

Contender Bush Beans, scientifically known as Phaseolus vulgaris, are a swift-growing and resilient annual variety that can be a game-changer in your survival garden. With a maturity period as short as 55 days, these non-GMO beans are ideal for regions with late final frost dates.

Why Contender Bush Beans Are Ideal for Survival Gardens

Contender Bush Beans mature faster than most other bean varieties, making them a reliable choice for environments with a limited growing season. They are a bush variety, which means they grow upright and don't require additional support. These hardy plants produce bountiful harvests each year during the summer, providing you with a steady supply of fresh beans.

Planting Contender Bush Bean Seeds

Planting Contender Bush Bean seeds is a straightforward process. Sow the seeds directly in well-draining soil after the last frost date in your area. Thanks to their early maturity, you can enjoy your first harvest just fifty days after planting, even in areas with late frosts.

Caring for Contender Bush Bean Plants

Contender Bush Bean plants are easy to care for. They thrive in full sun and are relatively low-maintenance. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. One remarkable trait of these beans is that they start producing a week ahead of most bean varieties, ensuring you have beans on your plate sooner.

Harvesting Contender Bush Beans

The harvest from Contender Bush Beans is both generous and delicious. Each plant produces 6-8" garden green bean seed pods, ready for picking as soon as they reach the desired size. This quick turnaround makes them an excellent choice for gardeners seeking a rapid yield.

I purchased my first seed vault from another company who claimed their product was waterproof and air tight. It was neither. These kits are the real deal.
