The present work achieves a complete morphological and health characterization of five local runner bean cultivars, coming from an organic farm in Oteruelo del Valle (Madrid, Spain). A distinctness analysis of the local landraces and 12 different varieties inscribed in the European Union Common Catalogue was carried out. The results show a complete varietal description for each variety and allow differentiating the material selected by local farmers from the rest of the commercial varieties based in morphological and agronomical traits. A total of 1600 seeds were analyzed from the local landraces from which they obtained 10 different fungal genera.
