Tennessee Green Pod
Tennessee Green Pod Bean
50 days — Synonyms of 'Tennessee Green Pod' beans include 'Tennessee Greenpod', 'Brown Bunch', 'Knife Blade', 'Case Knife', and 'Fields First Early'.[1]

The plants are compact, dwarf and stocky but rather sprawling with semi-runners that can reach eighteen to twenty-four inches long.  It is a good producer bearing its pods high on the plants. The pods are broad and flat, measuring about seven inches long by three-quarters of an inch wide. They are dark-green in color, meaty and tasty. An excellent home garden variety.

Introduced commercially in 1904 by D. M. Ferry with the following note, "Although new to the seed trade, it has for many years been grown in the South."[2] In 1907, Henry Field listed it as 'Fields First Early.' By the 1930s, nearly all seed companies, North and South, listed 'Tennessee Green Pod' in their catalogs. Each ounce is approximately 70 seeds.

Love these beans!
My kids loved these beans. They almost have a buttery taste when cooked and they seam to do well in my hot and humid coastal climate.

These beans have the most awesome flavor!
These beans have the most awesome flavor! Different than other green beans. They are flat and have strings but so very tasty! They're an early season variety and grow well in this area.
