Contender Bean (Buff Valentine Bean)
Bush. 50 days. A superb bush bean with huge yields of excellent quality pods. Earlier than most others and perfect for market. This tender, productive variety is still a contender in any garden! Great taste, too. The U.S. Vegetable Laboratory, in Charleston, S.C., bred this impressive variety and released it in 1949.
