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:

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.

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.
