Heirloom Bean Seeds
“Cherokee Trail of Tears”
aka Cherokee Black
Up for purchase is a package containing 65 grams of Cherokee Trail of Tears Black Bean Seeds (Approximately 200 Seeds+)
This wonderful 1800’s heirloom was brought to the public 1977 by the late Dr. John Wyche from Hugo, Oklahoma. Dr. Wyche’s Cherokee ancestors carried this bean over the Trail of Tears, the infamous, tragic winter death march that natives took from the Smoky Mountains to Oklahoma back in 1838-1839.
Beautiful, shiny jet black pole beans are great harvested fresh or dried.
The vigorous vines of this prolific pole bean grow to 8 feet or longer in length and produce an abundance of plump, purple/green 6-8" pods holding gorgeous shiny jet-black bean seeds. Good for fresh eating as snap beans and a wonderful dry bean. The dry beans can easily be incorporated into an array of traditional dishes. The texture and flavor make this one of the best tasting soup beans we have ever had the pleasure of eating!
Super easy to grow beans that tolerate a huge variety of climates.
Pest and disease resistant.
Pole habit, snap or dry.
65-90 days until harvest (as this time frame implies, this amazing bean just never stops producing a constant flow of its beautiful purple flowers and delicious beans!)
