- This dependable producer, even under adverse conditions, yields flavorful, dark green, meaty pods that are stringless and are ready about a week earlier than many other types.
The tendergreen variety of bean produces abundant yields of six inch pods. Tendergreens are resistant to common bean mosaic. This is a bush type bean plant, so it can grow independent of a pole or support. This plant is best suited for a more advanced gardener, as the window for harvesting is rather short, about two weeks. It is beneficial to sow a few different plants about ten days apart. These plants pay off well, with tender and delicious green pods that grow 5-6" long, with a mild and delicious taste.
