Tendergreen Bush Bean
A medium-dark green, round-podded, string-less and tasty bean with slight flecks of purple. The plants are strong and erect and reach about 20” tall with 5-6” pods.
The pods are round, meaty, stringless and excellent for fresh use, freezing, and canning. Prized for its heat tolerance, disease resistance and heavy yields, even with a short growing season. Areas with longer seasons can harvest 2 or even 3 times.
Very productive over an extended season, with heavy yields even in hot weather. A great mainstay for the home gardener.
Also known as Tendergreen String-less bean.
Originally introduced by Peter Henderson & Co. in 1922.
For Snap Beans, wait until they are about pencil size, but harvest before the beans inside the pods become lumpy. Snap beans, are snapped, strings removed and eaten fresh or cooked.
For Fresh Shell Beans, let the seeds in the pods get good and fat. You shell/remove the green beans from the pod and they are eaten fresh or cooked.
For Dried Beans, let the pods get brown and dry on the plant. Pick them before they can split open and spread out to finish drying. Remove from dried pods and store. Dried beans are usually soaked and cooked.
