Bean, Cherokee Trail of Tears (Phaseolus vulgaris), packet of 20 seeds, organic

(1 customer review)

$2.45

Family:  Legume (Fabaceae)

Annual.  55 days to purple podded green beans and 90 days to dry beans.

Heirloom pole bean, purple podded, yielding eventually dry beans that are mid-sized, elongated and very black.  This is a vigorous climber that we found to be very tasty as a fresh green bean (stringy only if allowed too long on the vine), and highly productive.  Actually, in all our tests of open pollinated pole beans, these are best for fresh green bean use.  Vines very vigorous, pods very numerous, a high climber.  A few beans planted in rich soil under a good trellis, a long pole or other suitable support in full sun will result in plenty of food!

20 Seeds per Packet, Certified Organically Grown

    Your Cherokee Trail of Tears bean does really well here, so it’s been with us a few years now. I save the seeds from our summer crop each year. It’s not easy to find pole beans that will thrive in our hot, humid climate (mildew, leaf drop, and bean beetles take out a lot of varieties), but this one is an absolute keeper. Thank you!!!
