Tendergreen Bean - Seeds
Latin name: Phaseolus vulgaris
The "Tendergreen" is a very productive, stringless variety even in chilly weather… Just like the Beurre de Rocquencourt, a small 2-metre square garden will produce enough beans to eat fresh, to stock up for the winter and to share with your friends!
Semi-bush plant that can sometimes make a few wispy stalks that spread out. The seed is a beautiful black speckled with purple.
