70 days from direct-sowing. Tenderstar is out to become your bean of choice: the one you grow when you can only select one variety, the one that everyone praises and exclaims over in the garden as well as on the plate! This is an entirely new type of bean, a cross of French and runner varieties with all the best characteristics (culinary and ornamental!) of both. You're going to love it!

The result of 15 years of British breeding, Tenderstar has all the gourmet texture of a French bean -- fleshy, smooth scrumptiousness -- with the rich flavor and beautiful blooms of a runner bean. These silky pods reach about 7 inches long, stringless and meaty with a succulence you will ADORE. They are filled with dark brown-spotted beige seeds that resemble big pinto beans.

And as if that weren't enough, the climbing vine on which the beans grow is as lovely as any scarlet runner bean. The pea-like flowers are two-tone, a pale pink offsetting the rich red. They arise profusely from late spring through midsummer, adding beauty to the vegetable patch and height to the annual bed!

Expect this bean to reach 10 feet tall (or more) and about a foot wide. It needs support, and makes a great choice for a 3 Sisters planting. If direct-sowing, plant the seeds about 2 to 3 inches deep once the soil has warmed in spring. Space them about 12 inches apart, in rows 5 feet apart in rich, well-drained soil receiving full sunshine. Or you can begin the seeds indoors in late winter, germinating them at a temperature of 64 to 68 degrees F (germination will take between 7 and 10 days) and then growing them on slightly cooler. If you do begin the seeds indoors, let them harden off (get used to the weather) for about a week before you transplant them into the garden. (Placing them in a sheltered spot that receives a bit of shade and is free from strong wind is the best way to do this.)

Tenderstar is already in markets in Europe under the name 'British Tender Beans,' and has created a sensation. Now it's ready to conquer America, beginning with your garden!

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
