Abstract: Canning quality of twenty nine new drought-tolerant bean lines from two grain types; large-seeded and small-seeded, was investigated. Bean seeds were soaked, blanched, canned in brine and stored for three weeks prior to evaluation. Mex-142, the popular canning variety, was used as a control. The traits studied were Hydration Coefficient (HC), Washed Drained Weight (WDWT), Percentage Washed Drained Weight (PWDWT), firmness, splits, clumping, size, shape and uniformity.
