African Cave Beans



Maine Yellow Eye Beans

Maine Yellow Eye Beans (Phaseolus Vulgaris) are related to the kidney bean. Maine Yellow Eye Beans are primarily ivory colored with tiny mustard colored markings surrounding the 'eye' on the inner seam of the bean. Yellow Eyes are about 1/2 inch, oval shaped with a mild, almost sweet flavor and mealy texture. The Maine Yellow Eye bean had more of a white color than mustard color like the Stueben Yellow Eye beans. This bean is also referred to as a Dot-Eye Bean, Molasses-Face Bean and Yellow-Eyed China Bean. They are most commonly grown in California, Michigan and Idaho.

Suggested Use:
The subtle, almost sweet flavor of the Maine Yellow Eye makes it ideal for many African and Indian dishes. These beans hold their shape and are therefore good in dishes which highlight beans.
