best bush bean variety i've grown

By 

from Knoxville, TN

Cons

Best Uses

Comments about American Meadows Tendergreen Bush Bean Seeds:

I've grown this variety for two years now and they do great for us. This year we canned 30 quarts and froze another 6 off two 20' rows from our small garden. They grow quick and start producing early, sometimes they'll produce so many bean pods they'll get heavy and blow over in storms. They have purple blooms and stringless pods that stay tender long after being picked without getting rubbery. I pick 3 runs off my plants then let them go to seed which I save for the next year. I haven't found a better bush bean for my area, so I'll be growing these from now on.

    DIRECT SOWED IN MID MAY-EARLY JUNE, GREW FAST, THOUGHT I WOULD GET A BIG YEILD BUT DIDN'T HAPPEN, BLOSSOMS FELL OFF, PODS CURLED, YELLOWED, MOST WERE ONLY THREE TO FOUR INCHES LONG WITH ONE OR TWO BEANS PER POD, BITTER TASTING, TOUGH AFTER COOKING, AND THE PLANT WAS NOT BUSHY AT ALL, IT GREW ALL GANGLY AND VINEY AND LAID ON THE GROWN SO THAT I HAD PUT RODS UP AND TIE THEM UP LIKE TOMATOES. WILL NOT GROW THEM AGAIN...GONNA TRY DIFFERENT VARIETY NEXT YEAR...

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
