Chapter 5 - Dry Edible Beans

Dry beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) belong to a class of legumes that are grown almost entirely for food. Production is mostly in Southern Ontario, and over 80% of production is exported. The main types grown in Ontario include navy (white), kidney, cranberry, black and otebo. Adzuki beans are only distantly related. Dry beans require special cultural management practices for optimum quality and profitability.
