HAVE: Cades Cove Greasy Back Beans
There is history with these bean seeds. This is an heirloom that originated in Cades Cove, and these seeds actually came from there . This name is what they came with, and i've done a little research on it, and it falls in line with the bean that was grown by the settlers and indians in that area .This particular bean was passed down through generations. My brother, who works up in the Smoky Mountains( at the visitor's center)received this seed last winter, from people he knew that worked on up in the Cades Cove Area. He gave it, with a story , to my mother, who grew several rows of it in the summer of 2007, just to harvest the seeds. It was not grown around any other beans.
I'm wanting to do a couple of trades for other heirloom seeds for her. I have trades of 25 seeds, but not many. I can also trade you any of my seeds, and there are a couple of heirlooms in there. I think she would be most interested in heirloom beans, or corn, but would take a look at anything.
