    Sitemap- pulses and beans

    Legumes represent a vast family of plants including more than 500 genera and more than 10,000 species.

    Legumes are the fruit pod of a plant originally from Central and South America. The word bean refers to the fruit, the seed and the plant that produces them. The pods of most beans varieties can be eaten fresh if gathered before reaching maturity. Once mature, they are no longer edible raw; the beans are shelled and the seeds called "pulses," can be used dried, and cooked.
