The objective of the research was to acquire new line of purple and yellow pod beans which has a high yield. This research was carried out in May to August 2013. The experiment organized by single plant method without replication and the treatment are 8 F2 population from a cross combinations elder and 5 parental varieties. Method of the selection is pedigree selection with the selection criteria include pods color and high yield. Data of the observation was analyzed to find out the environmental variance, genetic variance, heritability, selection progress for each selected line and organoleptic test. Results of this research showed that out of 864 lines of the grown plants, 163 selected lines were obtained that consisted of 74 purple pods lines and 89 yellow pods lines. High value of the genetic progress for pods weight character per plant has been belonged to all lines that can be selected effectively to improve the yield in F3.
