Organic Beans: Contender Bush Planting Instructions:
Contender Bush Beans thrive in full sun and take about 55 days to from planting to harvest. Direct sow the seeds 1 to 2 weeks after the average last frost. The soil temperature should be at least 65°F. Sow one seed every 4", 1" deep, and in rows 18 to 24" apart. For a continued harvest, plant again every 1 to 2 weeks until 60 days before the expected first frost of the fall. Skip planting when summer temperatures exceed 90°F.

Organic Beans: Contender Bush Harvesting Instructions:
When the pods snap and break in half cleanly, the beans are ready for harvest. Usually, this occurs just after the seeds have begun to form and the pods are 6 to 8" in length. To harvest, hold the stem in one hand and the pod in the other. Avoid pulling off the branches, as they may continue to produce pods.

Reviewer: Melinda Colvin from Springdale, WA United States  
I haven't yet planted the seeds; we still have a foot of snow.  I'll let you know mid-summer, lol.  But I was surprised and pleased at how quickly the order got here.  Good service!

Grows Fast January 31, 2017
Reviewer: Stephen Permar from Anson, TX United States  
Planted these seeds in the little starter pots about a week ago.  In 3 days they were already sprouting up! Will be putting them out in the garden middle or late February. If these things put out good veggies? I will be buying your seeds for a lifetime.

High production & great taste! November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Charles Freeman from Oak Hill, OH United States  
Just about the best bush bean we ever grew, the more you pick the more you get, produced up till frost, we even got an extra after that this time from covering them with a sheet at night.
