My first time growing bush beans. I grew Tenderette this spring. Tenderette gave me a very nice amount of beans. Of course I have nothing to compare my harvest to, not having grown another variety of bush bean. That said, I was not impressed with the actual beans themselves and will not be growing Tenderette again. They seemed very bland to me.

Have not grown Tenderette since the early 70's. It was developed by Charter seed for mechanical harvest. Pods set high on the upright plant. Blue Lake type pod. It was ok, but I don't remember it fondly. Lots of better eating snap beans.
