The legume family contain species producing seeds more commonly known as beans. In general, beans are warm season annuals that may be either grown as a bush variety or as a vine, containing either white, yellow, red or purple flowers. The seed itself is the most differentiating characteristic of the bean plants. The seeds produced can be found in various colours such as white, yellow, black, red, tan, cream coloured or even mottled. The seeds are either grown in straight or curved pods.
