Provider Bush Bean (50 days)

9

Phaseolus vulgaris

 

This is a popular stringless bush bean in New England. It is reasonably early on plants that are quite compact. Size is 5-6” and yield is good. Disease resistance is a strong point. 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. High resistance to Bean Mosiac Virus and Powdery Mildew.

150 seeds

 

PLANTING

Germination:  4-10 days

Germination Temperature:  Optimum soil temperatures 70-85 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing:  After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60 degrees F.  Sow 2-3”  apart. Planting in soil under 60 degrees results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant:25 foot single row 

Harvest:  Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually every 2-3 days to prolong production.

Tips:  Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen 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.

Amazing!

This is an amazing variety! I normally plant on Memorial Day and then get to pick beans the beginning of August. Well, I've just picked my first batch, with more to come. Will be sure to continue using this variety.

Provider bush bean

The provider bush bean seed sprouted very well and are growing good. These are the best beans for eating, canning and freezing. I've canned them in the past, made dilly beans and the kids and I snack on them straight from the garden.
