THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1917.
. of rrogress in the growing
or String Beans Tor Canning.
Much interest hns been evinred by
the community not only loenlly but
on the other Mauris as well in the
bean canning experiments being con
ducted by the Haiku Fruit and rack
ing Co., at Haiku.
On the 2-lth, the cannery manage
ment invited a number ot guests to
be present at the testing of the quali
, ty of the pack put up earlier in the
j week. Some ten cases were openrd
.'and the contents of the local pack
f compared with two h!gh grade brands
r of imported product. With the iden
tity of the product disguised all the
vis'Jors present agreed upon the fine
quality of three of the five varieties
grown and packed locally. l!oth in
appearance and flavor the local pro
duct appeared in every way equal to
the imported goods. Such is the re
sult of the initial experiment.
On the 27th, a second packing of
four of the five varieties previously
canned were delivered from the Sub
Station's experimental plantings, to
gether with two additional varieties.
The complete list of bean varieties
now under test is given below. The
heaviest yielding varieties are placed
first, which fortunately in a majority
of instances in also the order of their
merits from the standpoint of can
Bean Varieties Under Test For Can
ning. 1. Kentucky Wonder green podded
2. Refugee or "1000-1." green pod
3. Burgess (white seeded Kentucky
Wonder) green podded (climbing )
4. Davis White Wax yellow podded
fi. Golden Wax yellow podded
6. Stringless Green Tod green pod
7. Maui Reds green podded (hush).
While Golden Wax and Stringless
Green Pod are of exceptionally fine
quality and good yielders un
der intensive culture, when grown un
der ord'nary field conditions they
have proven Inferior in both quality
and quantity to the several other sorts
tested in comparison.
It is interesting to note at this time
that the effects of the phosphate fer
tilizers applied in these variety tests
have shown almost as striking re
sults as those reported in connection
with the shelled bean yields report
ed some weeks ago. Both the super
phosphate and reverted phosphates
almost doubled the yields of green
pods when applied at the rate of 500
pounds per acre, and nearly trebled
the yield on some varieties when ap
plied at the rate of 1000 pounds per.
acre. Full details will be reported
when the experiment is completed.
In the case of the Kentucky Won
der and Burgess pods beans a com
parative test was made between drill
and hill planting. In the former
method the beans were sown in a
single line three inches apart, or four
seeds per. running foot. In hill plant
ing four seeds were planted per. hill,
the hills being placed one foot apart
so that an equal amount of seed was
sown by the two methods. Hill
planting appears to have out-yielded
planting iji drills in the proportion of
about four to three.
It took about two weeks longer for
the pod beans to produce edible
pods than the bush varieties, or 70
days for the pod varieties against CO
days for the bush varieties. F. G. K.
Distribution of Choice Varieties
Sweet Potato Cuttings.
The Haiku Sub-Station announces
a free distribution of cuttings of three
tested varieties sweet potatoes as
New Era A heavy foliaged large
rooted variety, excellent for culinary

opmont and a superior variety for
stock .feeding, especially swine, when
fully mature (six to seven months.)
Kauai or Madera The well estab
lished commercial variety introduced
by de Jarves from Kauai.
Merced or Jersey Sweet A Stand
ard California variety, a shy yielder
but very superior for home use.
Twenty five to fifty cuttings will be
mailed free, or lots of 100 to 500 cut
tuigs may be obtained of each varie
ty by calling at the Sub-Station at
