Description
Cherokee Trail of Tears (aka Cherokee Black) Slow Food USA - Ark of Taste Certified Naturally Grown Seed
65 to 90 Days — First offered though the SSE back in 1977 by the late Dr. John Wyche (1911-1985), a gardener, seed preservationist, circus owner, and dentist from Hugo, Oklahoma.  He shared that his Cherokee ancestors carried the beans over the infamous "Trail of Tears" in the winter of 1838.

The vines reach about eight feet producing six inch green pods with purple shading.  The seeds are a shiny, jet-black color.  They can be used when young and tender as green snap beans or left to mature for dry beans.  Each packet weighs 0.5 ounce, which is approximately 55 seeds.

Fabulous
Best tasting soup bean ever. Weather indifferent, totally. No pest or disease problems. I would call them a bit too grassy and bitter for use as a green bean, though. As the 65-90 day count implies, they just never stop blooming and setting (and eight feet is not enough trellis/pole, btw).
