Black Shackamaxon Beans
Black Shackamaxon Beans are a climbing pole bean that are not grown commercially.
The beans are bright navy blue when first taken out of their pods, turning a purplish blue as they dry.
Black Shackamaxon Beans possibly originated with the Lenape (aka Delware) First Nations Tribe, via Quaker farmers in south-eastern Pennsylvania and in southern New Jersey, US.
Black Shackamaxon Beans were named after the Lenape village of Shackamaxon, located inside what is now Philadelphia.
