Provider Bush Bean is a prolific, bush variety that produces heavy-yielding, 18" compact plants. Compared to other bush bean varieties, it germinates better in cooler soils. This allows for earlier planting and makes it a great variety for those wanting to have beans producing earlier in the year. It also tends to produce later into the warmer months than most varieties, ensuring a longer harvesting window. Provider Bush Bean plants produce uniformly-sized, round pods that are 5 - 5 1/2" long. This variety is adapted to a wide variety of climates and soil conditions, making it the preferred choice for many.

Beans should be planted in spring after the last frost has occurred. Beans will germinate best once soil temps have reached 65 F or higher. Optimal germination temperature is around 77 F. Seeds can require 8 to 16 days to germinate, depending on the soil temperature. For continual production, succession plant every couple of weeks throughout the spring and early summer. Plants will drop blooms or cease production in the heat of summer. Subsequent succession plantings may be made in late summer/fall, as long as enough time is permitted before the first frost date.

Direct seeding is recommended. We suggest using a #6 plate on the Hoss Garden Seeder and modifying the hole size (if necessary) to fit the seed size. Beans should be planted relatively thick along the row and thinned to the desired spacing. To maximize garden space, consider using a double-row spacing. For double-row spacing, rows may be planted as close as 6" apart with 3' spacing between double rows. For single row spacing, 2' to 3' spacing is recommended.

Great producer

Along with Contender, this is one of my go-to bush beans. Produces a good amount of pods and is hardy.

Our new standby.

We had been planting another bush bean for decades until we tried Providers about 3 years ago. This is our new go-to early and mid-season bean now. Quick, vigorous growth and big, beautiful stringless beans with minimal effort. We plant about half as many each planting now as other beans because of the production from these plants.

We also had an issue with germination on our first planting this year and Hoss customer service shipped us out a new package immediately, no questions asked.

Highly recommended.


germination pretty good... not great....but young plants just sporadically dying....I would say 25 percent of what germinated died within 2 weeks....

I have FINALLY gotten a good green bean harvest with these seeds! Here in the humid South, keeping my green bean blossoms from dropping once the temps rise above 80 degrees is always a challenge. I decided to plant this variety for a fall crop, and I am tickled at how well they have produced. Germination rate was nearly 100%. I have been canning like crazy! This variety lives up to is name--a true provider
