WANTED: Cherokee Shellout Bean

blueflint(z6a OH)June 24, 2005

I am looking for Cherokee Shellout Beans, possibly the same as Kahnawake Mohawk and Powhatan Indian Bean. Originally grown in North Carolina by the Cherokee and other neighboring tribes. This is a pole, dry type bean. Also interested in other Cherokee Beans.


Preserving Cherokee crop heritage.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I have some Cherokee black beans. These were carried over the Trail of tears by the Wychie family whose decendents now live in eastern okla where I came from.These are a small black bean,pole variety, for snaps or shelling.Interested?
