Tendergreen Improved Bush Bean (Heirloom, 53 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. Stringless. Disease Resistance -Common Bean Mosaic


1 ounce = approx. 80-100 seeds

 

PLANTING

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.

Very productive!

I got loads of beans all summer into fall from a single planting. They stayed healthy, despite a month-long heatwave followed by weeks of rainy days. Mild flavor (the only minus for me - I prefer a stronger beany flavor).
