55 days — 'Contender' is extremely early, very dependable and prolific. It produces long, round to slightly oval pods that are medium green and about six inches long at maturity. They are tasty fresh out of the garden or can be canned or frozen.

It is resistant to common bean mosaic virus as well as powdery mildew. It does well in cool, short climates, as well as in warm, humid climates.

Bred as a stabilized cross between 'Commodore', 'Streamliner', and 'United States 5 Refugee' by the Southeastern Vegetable Breeding Laboratory, Charleston, South Carolina. 'Contender' was released in 1949 with the cooperation of the Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations.[1] Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 60 seeds.
