NDSU dry bean breeder Juan Osorno introduced two new dry bean varieties at Northarvest Bean Day. ND Rodeo is the slow darkening pinto variety. “Our breeding program is getting to the point where we’re introducing a new variety almost every year; ND Rodeo is a high yielding pinto that has a slow darkening trait with better seed size.” ND Red Barn is the new dark red kidney variety that has a better bean shape and better yield than most other dark red kidney varieties.
