Pulses are the edible seeds of plants in the legume family. Pulses grow in pods and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. They are annual crops and the term is limited to crops harvested for dry grains rather than vegetable crops harvested whilst still green. The term includes dry beans, dry broad beans, dry peas, chickpeas, cow peas, lentils and lupins among other minor crops.
