Dry beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) are a rich source of protein, carbohydrate, dietary fiber, and minerals. Seed chemical composition can play an important role in the sensory perception of bean seeds after cooking. Understanding the inheritance of seed chemical composition would provide essential tools to improve nutritive value and/or sensory traits.(More)
Few studies have explored sensory variability in beans. We used geographic, agronomic, morphological, and genetic criteria to select numerous groups of landraces from among the many collected in Catalonia (northeast Spain). Beans cultivated in a single location to avoid environmental effects were submitted to a trained panel for sensory analysis. We used(More)
