Legumes constitute a very homogeneous food group, developed from the gynoecium, with a single carpel and that opens both through the ventral suture and the dorsal nerve, in two valves and with the seeds in a ventral row. These pods are usually straight and fleshy. They generally have a fluffy, velvety, white inner flesh. Its internal part corresponds to the mesocarp and the endocarp of the fruit.
