Certified seed of a new dark red kidney bean selection will be available for growers to replace the older California Dark Red Kidney bean within two years. The new selection, tested far the past four years, has shown less splitting, comparable canning quality, and yields as good or better than either the California or Michigan variety of dark red kidney bean.
