More than 60 accessions of tepary bean (Phaseolus acutifolius) and five cultivars of common bean (P. vulgaris) were evaluated for disease reactions to different races of wilt-causing Fusarium (F. oxysporum f. sp. phaseoli) under glasshouse conditions; 95% of the tepary accessions were resistant. Resistant sources included both cultivars and wild accessions. We propose that a systematic screening of diverse germ plasm sources such as tepary beans be conducted to complement Fusarium wilt and multiple disease resistance information currently available for common beans.
