Organic Tendergreen Bush Bean (52 days)

An old reliable variety thought to be developed by Calvin Keeney. Calvin was the "father of the Stringless Bean" and bred Burpee's Stringless Green Pod in 1898. It was the most popular variety until Tendergreen arrived in 1925.

Tendergreen produces a strong and erect bush that will reach about 18"-22"s.  Pods are meaty, tender, round and stringless. Disease resistant, heat tolerant, early, heavy yields with an excellent flavor.  There is a reason this bean has been around since 1925 and hasn't gone extinct! 

Tendergreen is an excellent canning and freezing type. 

1942 Schell's Seed Co. says about Tendergreen bush bean....
"Plants are erect and heavily productive.  Pods are round, string-less, 6" long.  It is ready to pick in 50 days.  A very good bean for market and home garden."

Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region. TX

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. Grow 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 diseases 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.
