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.

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? Nothing

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!

What are the pros? Gorgeous color

What are the cons? None

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.

What are the pros? Not bothered much by pests

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is the first year I grew these. I grew them up cattle panels on the end of the garden. Such a beautiful plant that formed a solid wall at the bottom of my garden. The Japanese beetles barely touched these. When I first tried one, I was shocked by the crispness and the water content. I prefer the flavor to the bush varieties that I've had. It's been 90 degrees and very dry for much of the summer here. I lost a lot of plants that just couldn't take the heat despite being heavily mulched with straw bedding from my goat pens. These are performing wonderfully with no signs of stress or slowing down.

What are the pros? Easy to grow and great taste

What are the cons? More vining than expected

Review:

These are very hardy and are growing like crazy! I will know to lessen the amount of plantings next year because one plant has so many vines and produces a lot. They taste wonderful, and I would highly recommend for someone who wants an easy vining green bean, but make sure to have tall trellises! These climb 8 feet or more.

What are the pros? Good grower, decent flavor

What are the cons? Strings and a bit slow

Review:

Got these for use as a fresh snap bean, not as a dried bean. My first thought was that these were much slower than my bush beans. By 2-3 weeks at least. The next thing that bothered me was the strings. Even when picked at 2-3" long, mine were really stringy. Flavor was good, but nothing to write home about (I grow calima, dragon tongue, and beurre de rocquencourt bush beans, all of which have been outstanding). Maybe as a dried bean they are great, but I purchased based on reviews of them working as a fresh snap bean, which they were disappointed as.
