Bush Dry Bean, Kenearly Yellow Eye (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Tan Speckled. 90 days.

A favorite throughout the Northeast for baked beans and hearty winter soups. Used in the South as an alternative black-eyed pea. We frequently substitute Kenearly Yellow Eye for cannellini beans in our favorite recipe – kale and cannellinis. Beans hold their shape when cooked, or can be blended down into a rich and creamy base that is a good dairy-free alternative to heavy cream for use in sauces, soups, and casseroles. Originally developed in Kentville, Nova Scotia, for an early and uniform harvest. Plants are tall and upright and hold their pods off the ground, which is great for either hand or mechanical harvest.

Direct sow 1″ deep May through June in rows that are 1′ apart. Thin seedlings to 3-6″ spacing. Protect early sowings from frost. Stop irrigating in early August. Harvest beans from pods that are fully dry. Shell by hand, by dancing, or by driving on beans spread on a tarp. Winnow to clean. Test for dryness with a hammer – dry beans shatter.

Seed Saving

Some cross-pollination may occur, but beans mostly self-pollinate. For more info on growing dry beans, check out our blog post at: seedambassadors.org/we-love-growing-dry-beans-you-might-too/
