Why doesn't the Green Party have primaries?

According to the Texas Election Code, once a party's candidate for Governor gets 20% of the vote, the party must nominate using primaries.  If the party's candidate for Governor obtains 2% - <20%, the party may petition to nominate by primary.  Until then, the party has to nominate by convention.  The Green Party has not yet met this threshold.
