GW18-062
Registration by CSSA.
‘UC Rio Zape’ (Reg. no. CV-335, PI 693471) is a dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) developed by recurrent backcrossing between the landrace Rio Zape (recurrent parent) and ‘Matterhorn’ great northern bean (donor parent). UC Rio Zape is a BC5F2:7 cultivar that traces approximately 98% of its ancestry to Rio Zape but demonstrates resistance to Bean common mosaic virus due to introgression of the I gene. UC Rio Zape also has yields 19% higher than its heirloom parent. It also maintains culinary quality comparable to its heirloom parent. All field evaluations were conducted on certified organic land. UC Rio Zape will serve growers and consumers interested in heirloom-like bean that can be produced efficiently and economically.
