Bush Bean Provider

The bush bean Provider is my stock bush bean at market and does well each year. It tolerates cooler soils aiding germination. Provider is a high yielder so 3 rows (12 plants) will provide lots of produce. Tasty and almost stringless (when picked young) to 17cm long. Frequent picking produces more yields over a long period of time. Being a bush bean, Provider does not need to climb anything.

Sow: late October to January (cool climate) after risk of frost and sow when a warm period is coming.

Spacing: plants 15cm, rows 30cm (sow 2 seeds to a hole min) soaking seed overnight aides germination.

The common bean is a highly variable species that has a long history of cultivation. All wild members of the species have a climbing habit, but many cultivars are classified either as bush beans or dwarf beans, or as pole beans or climbing beans, depending on their style of growth.

Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 24 to 26 C (around 7 days to germination)
