Bean, Cherokee Trail of Tears is rated out of 5 by 3.Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen4ks from Tasty, Healthy, and Easy! I have planted these beans 2 years running, and I see no reason why I won't continue to do so. The black beans love our hot weather here in Central Texas so long as they get consistent watering, which I have with my drip irrigation system running on a timer. You can even let them dry on the vine so you can harvest and shell at once.Date published: 2014-11-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Melbournegarden from Hopeful I fertilized before they needed it and I killed them. This round is growing beautifully and am looking forward to buckets and buckets of beans!!Date published: 2012-05-08Rated 5 out of 5 by lajems from Great Bean I had great luck growing these and have tons of beans to use in my soups. The dried beans are a beautiful shiny black, and the flowers and pods are very pretty too. I will grow these again this yearDate published: 2012-03-20
