Tendergreen Improved Bush Bean (Heirloom, 53 Days)

5 reviews

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. 

1 ounce = approx. 80-100 seeds



Phaseolus vulgaris

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 60ºF. Sow 2-3” apart. Planting in soil under 60ºF results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row 

Harvest: Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually every 2-3 days to prolong production.

Tips: Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen 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. Sow a few times a season, 3-4 weeks apart for a continuous harevest.

I love this green bean. It is stringless, easy to grow, tastes wonderful, never tough. It's pretty, and produces alot. I grow it year after year. It's my favorite bush bean.

Tendergreen Improved Bush Bean (53 days, Heirlom)

I am very happy with these seeds. Everything I have come to expect from Pinetree Seed Company. A good value for the money and high rate of sprouting. Consistent with the Pinetree brand. Would recommend.

Late start here in Vermont!

The bean plants are up and growing, but I can't give a true rating until I pick and eat!
