Bean, Bush Dry, 'Kenearly Yellow Eye'
As far as beans go, yellow eyes are about as quintessentially Maine as lobstah or wild blueberries. The plump, creamy white beans sport a molasses-yellow mark around the hilum and are the business for authentic New England style baked beans. Kenearly is the variety of choice amongst a couple of different yellow-eye cultivars, known to keep its pods up off the ground and mature over a tighter harvest window. Wicked good eating! Early and productive.

Low to average. Beans prefer well-drained warm soil with a pH between 6.0-7.0.
Beans prefer warm soils and may rot at lower temperatures. This is particularly true for white seeded varieties. You love beans. Patience.
To increase yields in areas where beans have not previously been grown, use an inoculant to introduce rhizobia bacteria into the soil.
