Tendergreen Improved Bush Bean (Heirloom, 53 Days)

9 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. Stringless. Disease Resistance -Common Bean Mosaic

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 harvest.

My bush beans thought they ought to compete with my rattlesnake pole beans. They didn't win but did make it to the top of my tomato cages. Didn't plant a lot but had plenty of fresh beans to eat and canned a few pints.

Tendergreen Improved Bush Bean

Always have a very good shopping experience with Pinetree. I can trust their seeds to be successful in my garden, as we are in the same general "zone". In fact they are are bit colder. Pretty good success this year, in spite of the weather. They are the first seed company I go to. I only visit others for items that are not in their catalog. (very few)

Plants are strong but too early for beans. Can't wait to eat these beans!

I have not planted yet here in NW Colorado this year. But I have planted in the past and have been very pleased with the yield and flavor.
