Provider is perhaps the most dependable green bean you’re likely to find, as early as she is abundant. Aptly named, we appreciate Provider’s ability to germinate in cold soils, often planted and thriving up to two weeks earlier than most varieties. If you’re canning, freezing ,pickling and beyond, Provider’s concentrated production and disease resistance are a dream. She’s our go-to for Dilly Beans, without doubt. Abundance all at once makes preservation easy: Provider the perfect bean to feed you through the winter.
We offer two green bush snap beans, Provider and Tavera, because they serve unique functions in our garden. We plant Provider first (mid-May) because it grows in cooler soils so we eat Provider first — but when Tavera (planted late May/early June) is on our plates two to three weeks later there is no looking back. Every year we’re blown away by their exquisite flavor and delicate texture. Who knew there was so much diversity in green beans? We grow them all and love to share them all with you!
