Vigna mungo (Linn.) Hepper in Kew Bull. 11:128. 1956.

Vern.: Urad, Mash.

  • Azukia mungo (Linn.) Masamune
  • Phaseolus mungo Linn.
  • Phaseolus radiatus* Roxb.
  • Phaseolus roxburghii Wight & Arnott

    It may be distinguished from Vigna radiata (Linn.) Wilczek by the longer hairs on the pods and the distinctly raised rim-aril around the hilum of the seeds and the colour of the seeds, which is dirty green in this case.

    Distribution: Widely cultivated throughout the tropics.

    One of the important pulses.
