50 days — 'Tendergreen' is an old multipurpose variety that was introduced by Peter Henderson & Co. in 1922. The plants are strong and erect and reach about twenty inches in height. The pods are round, meaty, stringless and excellent for fresh use and canning.

Some current seed sellers are incorrectly attributing this variety to bean breeder and Seedsman Hall of Famer, Calvin N. Keeney. Although it can be said that the early work of Mr. Keeney can be found in the pedigrees of many modern stringless beans, the historical record does not support that he was actively part of Tendergreen's introduction.

Actually, in the 1931 bean variety description bible, "Beans of New York," U. P. Hedrick noted about 'Tendergreen', "The parentage is unknown as indicated in a letter from the concern (Peter Henderson) written in 1929." Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 70 seeds.

Note: The information provided here is an example of an important component of the work that we do here. Where other companies piece together their descriptions by regurgitating others descriptions or from assumptions and speculations, we use our extensive historical library, and other resources, to research the histories and pedigrees and report them to you with accuracy and noting references.
