Kenearly Yellow Eye

Kenearly Yellow EyeDry Bean Seed


Product ID: 2427

Best variety for baked beans.

Kenearly is very similar to Maine Yellow Eye, but matures more uniformly for easier harvest and has a slightly larger eye. The eating quality is every bit as good. Excellent for baked bean suppers and hearty winter soups, where the beans cook down into a rich, creamy broth. Avg. 950 seeds/lb. Packet: 100 seeds.

Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Beans, Bush Dry

CULTURE: Choose well-drained soil with a pH above 6.0. After the last frost date sow seeds directly into the garden soil about 2" apart, 1" deep, in rows 20–36" apart. Optimum soil temperature for germination is 70–90°F (21–32°C). Plant seed when daytime soil temperatures average at least 60°F (16°C), or risk poor germination. Inoculants can increase yields. For a continuous supply make successive sowings every 2–3 weeks through midsummer. Dark-colored seeds germinate better in cool soil than white seeds.
Plow under or remove and compost bean straw in the fall to hasten destruction of most disease organisms. Diseases affecting beans include blights, anthracnose, sclerotinia, and mosaic. Plant in well-drained soil, keep free of weeds, and do not handle when wet with rain or dew. Practice a three-year crop rotation, preferably into corn or grain crops. All our bush bean seeds are Halo-Blight free.
INSECT PESTS: Mexican bean beetles can be controlled with pyrethrin or azadirachtin.
When at least 90% of leaves have fallen and pods are dry, pull plants out by the roots. Complete drying under cover if weather is wet.
Depending on quantity, thresh by: (1) shelling pods individually; (2) holding several plants by the roots and banging back and forth inside a barrel or trash can; (3) stepping on a large, closed bag full of dry plants; or (4) using a properly adjusted threshing machine.
Make sure beans are dry (max. 9% moisture) and then store in a cool, dry place. Freeze dry beans to control storage insect pests.
1 lb./115', 9 lb./1,000', 125 lb./acre at 7 seeds/ft. in the row and rows 3' apart.
