A new small red bean cultivar, ‘Seona’, was artificially crossed between ‘SA9201-2B-18-1-4-1-4’ and SA9411-2B-1-1-2 in 1999, with fixed excellent agronomic characters using the pedigree breeding method, and selected for the further trials a ‘Miryang 18’. It was prominent and had desirable characteristics such as high grain quality, lodging resistance, and high antioxidant activity in the regional adaptation yield trials (RYT) for three years from 2012 to 2014 and was released for public consumption as ‘SA9914-2B-9-2-3-3-1’ in 2014. ‘Seona’ has a semi-determinate growth habit, yellow flowers, green embryonic axis, dark red seed coat, white hilum, and small spherical seeds (15.6 g per 100 seeds). The average yield of ‘Seona’ was 2.04 MT/ha in the regional yield trials (RYT) carried out for three years from 2012 to 2014, which was a slightly higher than that (1.97 MT/ha) of the control variety, ‘Chungju’ (Registration No. 6051).
