One of the major QTL found in Great Northern Nebraska #1 Sel 27 (GNN #1 Sel 27) and linked with SCAR marker SAP6 was derived from the great northern dry bean landrace Montana 5 and not the tepary bean
as previously thought (Miklas et al., 2003).
There, the prickly pear cacti still bear fruit and the tepary bean

The bean you are seeking is probably the white tepary bean
(Phaseolus acutifolius), which has been grown by Native American tribes of southern Arizona and northern Mexico for thousands of years.
Moreover, molecular marker-assisted introgression (Tanksley et al., 1996) may expedite and permit more focused use of tepary bean
and other alien cultivated and wild germplasm.
The cultivated tepary bean
accession G 40001 possesses indeterminate prostrate Type III growth habit and small white seed.
acutifolius tepary bean
(unknown source and resistant to Xcp) (Honma, 1956).
