Green Bush Bean. This is a popular stringless bean in New England. It is reasonably early on plants that are quite compact. Size is 5-6 inches and yield is good. Disease resistance is a strong point. The flavor is different from other green beans and difficult to describe, maybe "beanier". This is our bean of choice for making Dilly Beans. There are a number of strains of Provider, all good, but we think this one, from an Idaho grower, is the best. 2 oz packet (approx. 175 seeds)

PLANTING: Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production. Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.
