Tendergreen Improved Bush Bean (53 days, Heirloom)

GERM 4-10 DAYS
Heirloom 1922
A longtime favorite, this bean’s round pods are 6” long. Yield is heavy and prolonged. Flavor and texture are excellent, particularly when picked at a modest size. Equally good for freezing or eating fresh. 150 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered

Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.

Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.
