Northern bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is a legume related to kidney bean. They originated in Peru and were disseminated over the Americas by Spanish expedition. The name may have derived from the bean's greater size (approximately 1/2 inch long) and the fact that it is typically grown in the northern Midwest.

Northern beans are abundant in protein, giving more than 30% of the daily need. They provide up to half of the daily iron requirement, as well as significant quantities of folates and fiber.
