Dark red kidney beans are classified as Phaseolus vulgaris, or "common bean". This class is a part of the legume family, Fabaceae. Although common beans have many similarities, there are some differences to be aware of. For instance, not all common beans are grown in the same way. Common beans are either pole beans or bush beans. Pole beans are climbing beans, which means they need a structure to climb on. Whereas bush beans only grow near the ground in a small bush-like form.

Kidney beans are a staple across many cultural cuisines. They were originally cultivated in Peru, although they were a staple protein food in many different countries. Some of the countries that incorporate these beans into their cuisine are Indonesia, Louisiana, Spain, India, and other parts of Western and Southern Asia. Lubya is a spiced red kidney bean Afghan curry. It incorporates many different spices to bring a multitude of savory flavors to the beans. Kidney beans are also a principal food in many Caribbean dishes. One of their favorite recipes is the stewed kidney bean dish.
