‘Fuji’ Otebo bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) (Reg. No. CV-289, PI 656392), developed by the Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station, was released in 2008 as a new early-season, virus-resistant cultivar. Fuji was developed as a fourth backcross line from the commercial cultivar Hime. Fuji differs from Hime in possessing resistance to Bean common mosaic virus. In comparative trials, Fuji is similar to Hime in performance (2406 kg ha−1), plant height (43 cm), lodging resistance (2.2), and seed size (27.6 g 100 seed−1). Fuji flowers in 43 d and matures in 90 d 3 d earlier than Hime. Fuji and Hime possess the same determinate growth habit and resistance to race 73 of anthracnose [caused by Colletotrichum lindemuthianum (Sacc. & Magnus) Lams.-Scrib.]. Fuji meets the quality characteristics for use in sweet bean paste.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
