Contender is a heavy-yielding, open pollinated, green podded bush bean. The compact 12 to 20 inch bush plants produce heavy yields of flavorful, medium green, tender, curved, oval, stringless 6 to 8 inch snap beans. The small stocky plants are excellent for use in raised beds. This variety matures two or three days later than our earliest variety Provider which is the first snap bean to mature in most areas of Alaska. Snap beans are delicious fresh but also good for freezing. This variety has a definite place where good quality is desired. Late. Green snap beans will mature outdoors only in the interior and warmer parts of Alaska.
