Improved Tendergreen

55 days — 'Improved Tendergreen' has also been known over the years as "Tendergreen Improved," "Mosaic Resistant Tendergreen," and "Super Green."[2]

The plants are productive, grow vigorously and strong remaining erect, and reach about twenty inches in height. The six inch long, bright green pods are tender but brittle and excellent flavored. A great choice for freezing, canning and of course, fresh eating.

Developed by Mel Anderson[4] of the Rogers Brothers Seed Company of Idaho and introduced in 1950.[1,3] The complex cross (('Idaho Refugee' x 'Tendergreen') x 'Tendergreen') added disease resistance (Bean Common Mosaic Virus, Bean Virus 1, and New York 15) while maintaining the characteristics of 'Tendergreen'.[3] Each ounce is approximately 85 seeds.
