(Vigna radiata) Belonging to the legume family, mung beans exhibit a growth habit similar to cowpeas and develop a tough, pubescent pod similar to soybeans. Easy-to-grow plants produce clusters of thin green pods that mature to a dark coffee color, making them easy to spot. Shiny, olive-green beans are borne 14-16 per pod and can be sprouted, cooked whole, or split like a lentil. High in potassium, magnesium, folate, fiber, and vitamin B6. 80-90 days to harvest. Approx. 100 seeds/pkt.
Notice: 1. The seeds we sell have not been sterilized and therefore are not intended for human consumption. 2. We cannot ship mung bean or soybean varieties to Idaho.
Culture: This warm-season crop requires at least 100 frost-free days for optimum yield. After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 2" apart, 1" deep in rows 36" apart. Pods mature over a period of several weeks and should be harvested continuously.
