A new white seeded dry bean cultivar is described, 'Aluyori'. This is the first white kidney type cultivar developed and released in Mexico. Aluyori is a type I growth habit intermediate cycle cultivar, large seeded, suited for the national and international market, its seed weight is above 50 g per 100 seeds. Aluyori is adapted to irrigation conditions in States of Sinaloa and Sonora, as well as El Bajío in Central Mexico where has shown high yield potential of 3 t ha-1 and disease resistance, mostly rust elicited by the fungus. Under irrigation at Sinaloa, Aluyori proved to be superior than leading cultivars in the yellow market class, Azufrado Higuera by 18% and Azufrado Regional 87 by 22%, equivalent to 363 kg ha-1 in relationship to the former and 430 kg ha-1 to the second. The culinary characteristics of Aluyori are similar to those in the leading yellow class cv. Azufrado Higuera.
