Bean: Nodak Pinto

Phaseolus vulgaris (90 days) Nodak pinto bean was developed in North Dakota for shorter growing seasons and released in the 1980s by North Dakota, Washington, and Idaho Agricultural Experiment Stations and USDA-ARS. Incredibly early and productive, this bean is easy to grow. Nodak has a vine type growth habit and is resistant to bean rusts present in North Dakota.
