54 days — The pods are five to six inches long, round in cross section and medium-green in color. It is good for fresh, canning or frozen use. 'Tendercrop' is also reportedly resistant to Bean Common Mosaic Virus (BCMV) and Pod Mottle Virus (PMV).[2]

Although 'Tendercop' began as one of the first snap beans adapted for mechanical harvesting, its productivity and other attributes made it very popular among home gardeners.

Bred by Bill Zaumeyer[1] and released by the United States Department of Agriculture at Beltsville, Maryland as a cross between 'Topcrop' and 'Tenderpod' and released in 1958.[2] Each ounce is approximately 85 seeds.
