organic beansOrganic Provider (50 days)

Introduced by Dr. Hoffman of South Carolina around 1965.

Maroon colored beans.  Once was a white seeded variety, but not sure it still exists anymore in the seed trade. 

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, tender, stringless, 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 people said 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

Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:

50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65° or higher. Grows best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Avoid planting in soil that stays wet.  Heirloom bean disease thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.

Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5.  This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur. 

Try wide row growing for bush beans.  Make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one.  Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width.  You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you'll save on water.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
