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 are amazing!! I planted them along a section of my garden fence and they did amazing! They were a mass of vines with "millions" of beans! I've been planting the black turtle bush beans, which are also great and mature earlier, but I don't get nearly as many beans for the space and effort. I wound up picking most of these in snowy January. It's great that I can just leave them on the fence to pick whenever. They were dry and didn't curl up and drop the beans before I could get to them like other varieties do. I cook them up with my dried runner beans and veggies and make a year's worth of burrito filling for the freezer. Plus I have lots of seeds to plant for the spring. Will definitely do a longer row this year! Love these!!

What are the pros? black - anthocyanin

What are the cons? very late

Review:

Temperate zone, it was seeded at May 20th, germinated 108 days (24 days after standard "Kreolka"), at the 4th of October it gave a yeld 40 g per plant. seed size is 0.32 g. It boils at 60 minutes. It is very late in our conditions, it won't be ripen every year. In our opinion "Black turtle" is very suitable for us. These seeds will be given to people from south like Krasnodar and Ukraine.

What are the pros? Large Bean, Great Flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Planted 80 seeds and only 64 made it the bugs attacked the young growth, I laid on the ground a slug and ant killer with spinosad and iron in pellets. Bugs left them alone after that, They are prolific viners which can reach 8-10ft long!! I just left them all on the vine until they dried up, If you plant in June at the end of October They cook up real nice, The beans are large with tons of flavor and have a smooth texture. I harvested 2.5lbs of dry beans! I plan on planting more next year so I can harvest twice as many more!!

Review:

I've been growing this variety every year since 2012. I've grown these in northern California (zone 9B) and central Minnesota (zone 4B) and they grow wonderfully in both climates. In Minnesota, I plant them indoors in April and put them outside in mid-May. Vines grow very quickly with flowers appearing by June. Green beans are ready by the end of June or beginning of July and stay productive as long as you pick them every few days at a minimum. Beans get stringy fast, so I recommend picking before "bean lumps" appear (developing seeds). By August, I start leaving patches unpicked for dry beans to develop (mostly for seed saving). By September, I stop picking green beans and leave them all to ripen. Each year, I save the earliest seeds for replanting and the later ones for cooking. Beans dry easily indoors after shelling. Hands down, one of my largest and most anticipated crops each year.

Review:

This was a very wonderful pole bean to grow. My husband trellised it 8 feet tall and it grew 2 feet over. The young pods were delicious, older pods were a little tough, but we let them dry out and harvested, so far, 2 pounds of dry beans. Overall, we harvested 15 pounds of beans from about 30 seedlings and we are still harvesting. The flowers attracted wild bees into the garden, http://be-notafraid.com/the-wedding-treasure-in-grandmas-hatbox/Hichborn was nice as well. I did need to water them every day during the drought. This variety of pole bean did very well in the heat, humidity In VA. First time that i was so successful growing pole beans!
