The mung bean (Latin: Vigna radiata) is a plant species of the family Fabaceae. A typical mung bean plant produces 30 to 40 pods. The pods are long, cylindrical, and hairy. They contain an average of 10 to 15 small, ellipsoid shaped seeds which are variable in colour.
Mung beans are a warm-season crop meaning that they require both warm soil and high temperatures to grow well and produce crops. The plant takes between 90-120 days to fully mature.
The mung bean is thought to have originated from the Indian subcontinent where it was first domesticated. Cultivated mung beans have been introduced throughout Asia, Africa, Austronesia, the Americas and the West Indies. Moreover, for people in regions where animal protein is scarce, mung beans are an important source of protein.
