Baer's Best Beans King of the Early Heirloom Beans

Baer's Best Beans
King of the Early Heirloom Beans

King of the Early is a hearty bean with a robust flavor, an excellent way to warm up on a cold New England fall or winter day. Large and red, with beige stripes, this old variety came to us from a farmer in Knox, Maine.

It holds up well to longer cooking, and is ideal for chili, hearty soups, and stews. The name was used to advertise its very early ripening and dependability when it first appeared in seed catalogs more than a hundred years ago.

Baer's Best Beans Yellow Eye Stueben Heirloom Beans

Baer's Best Beans
Yellow Eye Stueben Heirloom Beans

Maine-grown, white with a big yellow eye, these all-purpose beans make excellent soup, salads, and side dishes. The Yellow Eye is one of Baer's most popular heirlooms, and is a favorite for traditional baked beans.

They were originally cultivated by indigenous people of the region, and are still used for the traditional dish Hulled Corn Soup.
