Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Tendergreen Bush Bean
Phaseolus vulgaris 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
These beans are a bush variety but the bushes are very large and leggy. I plant intensively in raised beds. These are so tangled that it is extremely difficult to get to the beans without pulling up plants. If you have space to spread out, this variety is fine. They just don't work close together. Beans are just coming in and taste fine but nothing spectacular. Unfortunately, I ordered too many seeds and will probably not use them. Maybe they would be good for bean sprouts!
