Abstract

The two crops have been a significant addition to the diet in Southeast Asia since ancient times, and more recently have become mainstream in North America with use in plant-based protein diets and food products. Mungbean was domesticated in India through selective breeding by local farmers. Currently, mungbean is primarily grown in Southeast Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America. These were produced in America in the 1830s as Chickasaw pea. Most of the mungbean production in the U.S. currently is in Oklahoma. However, some also is grown in Kansas, California, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Texas.
