An heirloom from the southern states of Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, the original seed is said to come from a turkey's craw brought home by a hunter who is thought to have been an African-American slave in the 1800s. The Turkey Craw bean is typically a pole bean. It is a heavy producer of 5-6 inch pods and can be used for snap or dry. The bean has a beautiful green color and is great as a fresh bean. It has deep bean flavor and is sweet, rich, buttery, and meaty in taste and texture.
