Organic Tendergreen Bush Bean
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
These green beans are doing great! We planted them directly in our raised bed in full sun. We have already had a lovely harvest of green beans!
Seeds were received quickly and are already out in my garden. Looking forward to a good crop of organic green beans!
