Provider Bush Green Bean
Certified Organic Seed
Big, delicious harvests of perfectly plump beans.
Provider is a favorite variety of many market growers. It's big and bushy, and it cranks out firm, medium-thickness, medium-length green beans that really satisfy. Equally delicious steamed, pan-fried, or processed (makes great dilly beans), Provider will earn a place in your garden nearly every year.

Sow Provider Bush Green Bean at 3-week intervals from just after last spring frost until 8-10 weeks before fall frost. Harvest when skin is taut, before the beans become discernible in the pod. Pick beans every other day, and plants will produce for 3 or 4 weeks. If young beans struggle, wait a week and re-sow: many bean ailments are short-lived in the garden, and later sowings will succeed even if earlier ones do not.
