In botany, a type of fruit that is characteristic of legumes (plants belonging to the Leguminosae family), such as peas and beans.
It develops from a single carpel and splits down both sides when ripe to release the seeds.
In certain species the seeds may be ejected explosively due to uneven drying of the fruit wall, which sets up tensions within the fruit.
In agriculture, the name “legume” is used for the crops of the pea and bean family. “Grain legume” refers to those that are grown mainly for their dried seeds, such as lentils, chick peas, and soy beans.
