Plant Information
The Tendergreen bush bean was introduced by Calvin Keeney in 1922 and entices with a trio of things that earn it three cheers every time. First, the plants bloom with lovely flowers, then they give way to young pods that can be enjoyed like snap beans. Left to mature, the pods produce lima beans. And growing them is as easy as 1-2-3. Reaching approximately 2 feet in height, Tendergreen bush bean plants are self-supporting and easy to grow in a garden, a raised bed, or containers. They're very quick to mature, making them ideal for short growing seasons like those found in the north. A mature plant will produce quite a heavy harvest of impressive pods 5-6 inches in length. Your beans will be ready to pick about 10 weeks after they're sown. They'll be about as thick as a pencil and their sides will be curvy thanks to all the healthy beans inside! Tendergreen bush beans are perfect for freezing and canning, steamed or cooked in a favorite recipe, or enjoyed raw as part of a salad or snack. They're rich in lots of antioxidants and extremely high in fiber and flavonoids, helping to reduce the risk of heart disease. They're also an excellent source of key vitamins, like A, C, K, and B6, as well as folic acid.
