Beans are popular as vegetableg hoth in the temperate and tropical regions of the world. They are highly perishable and greatly amenable to deterioration due to desiccation. According to Krause (1927), French, Kidney or String beans (Phaseolus vulqaris) remained in good condition for 3 weeks at 32-38°F and R.H. of 85%. Plantenius, Jamison and Thompson (1934) have, however, reported that French be'tns keep longest at 40°F with a R.H. of about 85% Lima beans (Phaseolus lunatus) in the pod can be stored for 3·4 weeks at 32°F (Platenius, Jamison and Thompson, 1934). Plank and Schneider (1928) found that An average temperature of 35.6°F and R.H. of 90% were the conditions most favourable for the storage of dwarf French beans and runner be&ns (Pha-seolus multlilorus). Scott and Mohoney (1946) reported that shelled lima beans were held in acceptable condition for 11 days at 28-3:!°F. However, no work on the cold storage of the field beans (Dolichos la7lab) appears to have been reported.
