Bean, Cherokee Trail of Tears

Shiny jet-black beans that are harvested fresh or dried.
These were the beans carried in the pockets of Cherokee Indians on their tragic forced relocation from North Carolina's Smoky Mountains to Oklahoma in 1838-1839. Shiny and jet-black, the beans are harvested dry and can be happily incorporated in an array of traditional American dishes. The beans are encased in 6-8" greenish-purple pods that are left to dry on the vine before picking, but they can also be picked green and prepared like snap beans.
