Seed of the Week: Mung Beans

Our cute mystery seeds from two weeks ago were indeed mung beans, Vigna radiata.

This cool time lapse video shows the seeds germinating and growing.

Mung beans are originally from India and are grown extensively in Asia. They can be grown in Arizona, but you don't see them very often.

These plants are much more likely to be found in the grocery store as sprouts.
