Rwanda kidney bean (variety of Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is a red, brown or speckled legume with the color and shape of the kidney. It is a popular variety of ibishyimbo which is the Kinyarwanda name for the common bean. Though it is available countrywide, it is more concentrated in Gicumbi district to the north. Here, family growers farm both the climbing and regular beans in the same farmyard. The origin of this type of bean was the Central American highlands. It may have come to Rwanda via Tanzania about 300 years ago.

We source Rwanda kidney beans from the Northern Province especially Gicumbi district as well as other parts of the country. Our legume-loving farmers operate between 1 and 2 acres of land where they mix climbing and regular beans. They keep the soil fertile through mulch and farmyard manure even as the legume fixes nitrogen into the ground for the next crop. Our family growers also keep off excessive chemical sprays to make the produce acceptable in the international market.
We harvest Rwanda kidney beans three months and one week after the planting date. This can extend to 4 months for the late maturing types. We start by ensuring that the leaves have wilted and the stalks have turned the color of straw. Our farmhands employ sickles to lift the plant off the soil. After drying it while strung upside down in a dry interior environment, our team then gets ready for threshing.
The threshing of kidney beans involves the removal of pods piece by piece to expose the seeds. We may also use the fast method of rolling a pin over two clean tarpaulins holding the beans and then winnow the exposed seeds from the debris and stalks. We go through several bouts of winnowing whereby we remove any remaining specks covering the product. The seeds are then ready to pack.
We pack Rwanda kidney beans in 6.8-kilogram produce boxes that we first dry. We also have boxes that come in the larger sizes of 12 and 14 kilograms. We may opt to use the flexible flat cartons, the taut plastic crates or the sturdy fiber baskets. We finish off each packing bout by sticking self-adhesive labels of the name of the produce, the country of origin and the net weight.
We store Rwanda kidney beans in a cool, dry environment of our cold rooms. We maintain relatively cool temperatures of 7 to 13 degrees Celsius. We maintain a moisture level of below 14%.
