Cherokee Black Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)  

This wonderful pole bean was bred by the people of the Cherokee Nation in the Great Smoky Mountains and traveled with them on the infamous "Trail of Tears" in 1838. The Cherokee black bean grows vigorously on vines up to 10ft or more and should be grown on a trellis. Both the fresh green beans and the dried black beans are delicious and the flavor has won it a place in Slow Food USA's "Ark of Taste". 

Planting Instructions: Sow 1 seed 1" deep after frost in spring every 4" and trellis. Full sun.
