Phaseolus acutifolius, commonly known as tepary bean, is native to the Sonoran desert of the Southwestern United States and Northwestern Mexico. They are one of the most heat-, drought-, and salt-tolerant crop legumes, traditionally cultivated by the Tohono O’odham and Pima peoples of Southern and Central Arizona and are being evaluated as a possible source of abiotic stress genes for other Phaseolus species by researchers at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in Colombia.
