Cherokee Cornfield Pole Bean Seeds are heirloom seeds with pretty earth tone shades and markings. Yields well, especially when grown up corn stalks. The story goes that the different color varieties should not be separated out or else they will barely flower -- that much like a family, they are stronger when kept together. Traditionally eaten as a shelly bean -- boil the pods like one would with edamame, then pop the small beans out of their pods. Great for growing in the south. Ready to eat in 60-110 days.
