Common bean's center of origin is Central America, and it was likely domesticated there as well as in the Andes. Beans were also carried into North America and were grown by Native Americans there for many centuries. They were carried to Europe by early explorers of the New World, and have undergone about 500 years of additional domestication and selection in Europe. The species has great agricultural variety, and is of critical importance as a high-protein food across the world.

Common bean is closely related to several other domesticated crop species in the group of "warm-season legumes". Other domesticated species in the Phaseolus genus include lima bean (P. lunatus), tepary bean (P. acutifolius), and runner bean (P. coccineus). Species in the similar Vigna genus include cowpea (V. unguiculata), adzuki bean (V. angularis), moth bean (V. aconitifolia), black gram (V. mungo), mung bean (V. radiata), ricebean (V. umbellata), and Bambara groundnut (V. subterranea). Other more distantly related warm-season legumes include soybean, jicama, pigeonpea, African yam bean, hyacinth bean, and Apios americana ("potato bean").
