Bean, Cherokee Trail of Tears 1
loading...

A hardy and prolific vining plant that’s tasty as a snap or dry bean. This heirloom variety 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.” (85 days)

Each packet contains approximately 40-60 seeds.

Planting Instructions:
Sow beans 1 to 2 inches deep when danger of frost is past. Soaking seeds 1 to 2 hours before planting will speed germination. Beans will rot if soil is too cold or very damp. Sow bush-types 6 to 12 inches apart in beds, pole-types 6 inches apart in rows. Provide support for poll-types.

Harvest for snaps when pods are good sized; keep snaps well picked, as production slows as seed matures. All varieties of strings will develop in over-mature pods.
