History:

The Cherokee Turkey Craw Pole Bean has a rich history deeply rooted in Native American culture. Originating from the Cherokee tribe, this bean variety has been passed down through generations for its exceptional taste and adaptability. The name "Turkey Craw" refers to the way the beans crawl and climb along poles or trellises as they grow. This heirloom variety holds significance not only for its culinary uses but also for its cultural heritage, making it a cherished addition to any garden.


Culinary Uses:

Cherokee Turkey Craw Pole Beans are prized for their tender texture and rich, nutty flavor. They are delicious when harvested young and eaten fresh, providing a satisfying crunch and vibrant flavor. Additionally, these beans are excellent for canning or freezing, allowing you to enjoy their exceptional taste year-round. Whether incorporated into salads, soups, or side dishes, the Cherokee Turkey Craw Pole Bean adds a unique and flavorful twist to any meal.


Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:

As a pole bean variety, Cherokee Turkey Craw beans exhibit a climbing growth habit, requiring support from poles, trellises, or other structures. Plant seeds directly into the garden soil after the danger of frost has passed, spacing them 4-6 inches apart and planting them 1 inch deep. Provide a sturdy support system for the vines to climb, ensuring adequate airflow and sunlight exposure. These beans thrive in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged throughout the growing season to promote healthy growth and abundant harvests of these delicious pole beans.
