AbstractThe flageolet is a type of common bean that was originally developed in France, in the 18th century. It is known as Flageolet "vert" of Green Flageolet and it was first obtained by a French grower called Chevrier, in Brétigny-sur-Orge, a suburb of Paris, around 1878 (Porcher, 2005). Its most remarkable feature is its seed, smaller than other kidney bean seeds, and of an attractive pale green color, a rare trait within the common bean germplasm.
The objective of this research was to evaluate the agronomic performance of local varieties of flageolet bean as the beginning of a breeding program focused to the selection of breeding lines to be grown by farmers in Northwestern Spain as new commercial varieties under the regulation of "Dessignation of Origin - Lourenzá" (Anonymous, 2004).
