(Phaseolus vulgaris) Cherokee variety rumored to have been carried along the Trail of Tears during the 1838-39 forced relocation of the Cherokee people from their native territory in the southeastern US. Pole-type variety produces heavy yields of shiny black beans. Young pods are also suitable for use as a fresh snap bean. 85 days to harvest.
CULTURE: Beans perform best in well-drained soil of normal fertility. Beans do not require supplemental nitrogen as they are able to fix their own, however a fall application of well-aged manure or compost will help to boost yields in poor soils. Avoid planting beans in low-lying or poor-draining areas as this can predispose seedlings to fungal diseases and damping off.
SOWING: After the danger of frost has passed and daytime soil temps average at least 60 degrees, sow seeds 4-6” apart in rows 24-36” apart. Avoid planting when cool, wet weather is forecast as this can increase the occurrence of fungal diseases and damping off.
