Carman Black is a high-yielding black bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) with an upright indeterminate growth habit (Type 2a) and early maturity. Carman Black was developed at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Research Station, Morden, MB, in collaboration with the AAFC Research Centre, Lethbridge, AB. Carman Black has a black seed coat with an intermediate (matte-shiny) seed luster or glossiness. Carman Black is well adapted to the Red River Valley of Manitoba, with maturity earlier than the check cultivars AC Harblack and CDC Jet.
