Cherokee Trail of Tears Pole Bean
A productive pole bean whose pods are suitable for eating fresh or drying to shell. Bean pods are a greenish purple with the beans drying to a shiny jet black. These beans are steeped in a powerful history: they were carried by the Cherokee people on the brutal Trail of Tears marches between 1830 and 1850. Thanks to these heroic efforts, we can still grow this bean today. Open pollinated.
Grown organically with love and tenderness in the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada, in the summer of 2023. Germination tested. Minimum 30 beans.
