Pole, 65 days. This heirloom was brought from Tennessee by the Cherokee people as they were marched to Oklahoma by the Federal Government in 1839 over the infamous "Trail of Tears" that left so many dead and suffering. This prolific variety is good as a snap or dry bean and has shiny, black beans. Vigorous, vining plants.

Review:

These beans seem fairly bug resistant. I love that they can be snapped early or let grow til they're big enough to shell. They have a wonderful flavor and the beans are pretty - a deep purple/black. They produce quite well and the mature beans are easy to shell. Planted 3/16 and began harvesting beans that are mature enough to sell by 6/10.

Review:

This is my second year growing this bean and I can't imagine that I'll ever stop. This pole bean grows so easily that it would be a great seed to teach a child to garden. This year I have cattle panels set in hoops and they are quickly covering the arches. Last year my vines produced right up to frost and though I'd canned many of them as snap beans, I allowed a quantity of them to dry and they are great cooked that way as well. Not wishing to jinx myself this year, I'll still say that the vines seem to be pretty immune to the Japanese beetle invasion last year and never slowed down.

Review:

1st time trying this bean. I planted 8 seeds in raised beds. They started slow then took off! All were 10ft. tall. This bean is stringy if picked under 3 inches. Our favorite was eating the small ones right off the plant. 3 months of 90 degree heat and drought didn't faze these plants. We had our fill of green beans by August and started letting them dry on the plant. Now, we have tons of black beans! We will definitely plant these again!

Review:

I am always searching for vegetable varieties that are care free, disease free and insect free. These fill the bill. Over the entire summer I saw perhaps two or three leaves that had been "tasted" by some bug. I planted them 6 inches apart, had 100% germination and now they are like a jungle. They quickly grew up and over their 7' trellis and keep trying to find something, anything, to keep growing on. Once they get started they produce like crazy. A 10 foot row has provided lots of meals and I've frozen plenty as well. I've just stopped picking them and I'm going to let them dry on the vines now. When they are small and before the seeds start forming they have no strings. Once the seeds start to form they do have strings and some can be quite tough but it's easy to remove them and then they are still very tender. I love the fact that these beans are good in all stages of development. And they are delicious!

Review:

We wanted a black bean to harvest and dry. We leave them on the vine until the pod is completely purple and then dry in the pod. These are gorgeous, they come out of the pod all shiny. Very prolific in our area and does not require a lot of water. Yummy too.
