- AAC Cranford is an early-maturing cranberry dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cultivar with high yield, an upright determinate bush (Type I) growth habit, and large seed size. Currently, dry bean cultivars in the cranberry bean market class are only commercially grown in Manitoba and Ontario, primarily due to their late maturity. Therefore, AAC Cranford, with its early maturity and high yield potential, will enable growers to commercially produce cranberry bean in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
