Between 1838 and 1839 the Cherokee people of the United States were forced to march across the Smoky Mountains to Oklahoma. This winter death march is known as the Trail of Tears as over 4,000 people died making the trip.
In 1977 a member of Seed Savers Exchange named Dr. John Wyche from Hugo, Oklahoma donated these seeds to our collection. It is thought that his Cherokee ancestors carried this heirloom bean with them on the Trail of Tears.Beans were domesticated in the Americas thousands of years ago and serve as a protein in the diet of humans and animals.
Growing this bean takes about 55 days to produce a purple podded green bean and 90 days to dry beans. This is a vigorous climber that we enjoy very much as a fresh green bean and have found to be highly productive.
