Provider Bush String Bean is a wonderful heirloom variety with good old-fashioned taste and prolific production of pods. Introduced by Dr. Hoffman of South Carolina around 1965. Snap bean for home gardens, local market, shipping fresh and for freezing. 15-17" vines, bushy, sturdy, and strong roots. Pods round to heart-shaped, straight, 5-1/4", fleshy, low fiber, stingless, and medium dark green. Excellent for cool soil emergence for early season or cool coastal climates. Though it has a concentrated early set, it does provide for longer than many bush snap beans. Good flavor and high yields. Widely adaptable. In our taste test, Provider was more firm, crisp, sweet and had a true "bean" flavor compared to other bush beans. People also said because provider was more firm they would use them in casseroles or boiled w/red potatoes. A great canning variety as it holds its form and doesn't become mushy/soggy. The true "beany" flavor of this heirloom really shines when canned. No tin can taste here! It will remind you of picking summer beans while cuddled by the winter fireplace. Resistant to common and NY15 bean mosaic and pod mottle viruses, and is tolerant to powdery mildew Excellent fresh or canned. Zones 3-10 All seeds are packaged and for the current growing season.
