Pigeon Pea is a legume, which means it produces beans for consumption and it brings Nitrogen into the soil, in more technical terms legumes are called “ Nitrogen- Fixing Plants”. Nitrogen is one of the most important nutrients plants require, so planting pigeon pea in your garden or yard will not only give you delicious beans but will also help give nutrients to other plants growing around it. The pigeon peas are rich in proteins, minerals such as Iron, vitamins such as Vitamin C and lipids. They grow well with little water and in poor soil.
