What are the pros? productive

What are the cons? deer love them

Review:

These plants did very well especially since the deer eat the leaves off them every few days. The plants still gave us lots of beans. Great variety, I will definitely grow them again.

What are the pros? flavor and size

What are the cons? short season

Review:

This is an easy bean to grow especially for first timers. Don't get over 2 foot tall so no staking required. I use small tomatoe cages to keep them off the ground. The beans tend to get huge but still have a great flavor. The only thing I didn't like is they stop producing after the first beans were picked. I don't know if that is normal with this bean. I've grown other green beans and they always produced more. I recommend Cantare green beans. They are definitely worth growing.

What are the pros? Grows great every year

What are the cons? None

Review:

We live on the Gulf coast and I plant these in late February every year. By April and May, we are giving beans away to all of the neighbors they produce so well. Great flavor and compact growth.

I planted these in late June. In about 50 days I had beans and I kept getting them until mid November. Beans were big and good tasting. I will buy these again this year.

Tied for my favorite green bea

What are the pros? Excellent green bean

What are the cons? Baker Creek's price is high

Review:

I have grown many varieties of bush green beans, and Contender is tied with Tenderette for my favorite. It is a round-podded bean; the reviewer who said it was flat must have planted the wrong seeds. Contender is early (earlier than Tenderette by about a week), productive, and very tasty. Keep them picked, every two days or so, and they will keep producing.
