About Vigna radiata

Vigna radiata [L.] R. Wilczek (mungbean or green gram) is an ancient legume crop that was domesticated in India some 3,5 million years ago. Mungbean is a versatile crop that only takes 60-65 days to harvest and one of the major edible pulse crops of India, China other countries in South and South East-Asia. It is also cultivated and eaten in Southern Europe, the Southern USA and in semi-arid countries in Africa e.g. Kenia. The mature seeds provide an invaluable source of digestible protein, fibre, B vitamins and minerals, particularly iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc for humans (including infant supplements) in places where meat is lacking or where the population is mostly vegetarian. Mungbean is not only grown for seeds but also as forage (fodder for cattle). Mungbean is a self-pollinated diploid (2n = 2x = 22) plant with the estimated genome size of 494 to 579 Mbp depending on the analysed genotype [1, 2].
