Common bean lines that are tall, are mosaic resistant, have seed that is either pink in color or mottled and striped, flower between 50 to 59 days, and mature in ]05 to 114 days exhibit relatively lower potato leafhopper (Empoasca fabae (Harris)) nymphal infestation than those not described as above. Since low nymphal infestation is an index to resistance in the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), these characteristics are suggested as criteria to use when selecting common bean lines resistant to potato leafhopper.
