Provider Bush Bean

The gold standard for Southern gardens.


Reliable in southern states even when weather is adverse. Vigorous plants produce early, heavy yields of straight, uniform beans. Rich, beany flavor; excellent for canning. If kept picked, Provider will continue to "provide" through the summer. Stingless, resistant to Bean Mosaic Virus and Powdery Mildew. The standard to compare others to in the southern states. 50 DAYS. Seed Counts: A 2-oz. packet of snap bean seeds (bush and pole) contains about 150 seeds and sows a 25-ft. row. A 2-oz. packet of lima bean seeds (bush and pole) contains about 50 seeds and sows a 15-ft. row.
