Bush Bean Contender

Bush Bean Contender - Organo Republic

It is a green bean variety with round, straight and long pods. Green beans germinate and ripen quickly, making them a staple in gardens worldwide. The bushes are luxuriantly overgrown with pods, ideally stored after harvest. The beans are resistant to BV, BRV, and CTV and produce an annual crop.


Hоw to grоw Bean from seeds:

Sowing: Sow the bean seeds 1 week after the last frost in rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Before planting, spray the seeds with a powder inoculator to begin the nitrogen fixation process. Sow seeds 1" deep and 3" apart, in rows 2-3 feet apart. Do not overfill the crop to prevent seeds from rotting in wet soil. Expect germination 7-12 days after planting. Carrots, cucumbers, and corn are good companion plants, but avoid onions.
Growing of Bean: Keep the soil moist as legumes have shallow roots for a good harvest. A lаyer of mulch will help retain moisture and keep weeds out.
How and When to Harvest Bean: Ripening occurs ten weeks after germination. Therefore, harvesting daily improves the germination of legumes. Best flavor and more delicate beans are no thicker than a pencil or 4 to 8" long. 
Bean's Seed Saving: Allow the beans to dry thoroughly on the vine to a light brown pod. Separate the seeds from the pods. Dry them for storage in a cool, dry place for up to a year.
