White with a big light brown spot around the eye, yellow-eyes date back to 1860's in New England.

Also known as: Dot-Eye bean, Molasses-Face bean, Yellow-Eyed China bean,
Butterscotch Calypso bean, Hoppin’ John beans or Steuben Yellow-Eye beans

Tasting Notes: They are used for "Boston Baked Beans". 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.

1 pound of dried beans = 2 cups dried beans = 6 cups of cooked beans.
