   From Did you Know Category:

Phaseolus  (bean, wild bean)] "is a genus in the family Fabaceae containing about 70 plant species, all native to the Americas, primarily Mexico.
At least four of the species have been domesticated since pre-Columbian times for their beans. Most prominent among these is the common bean, P. vulgaris, which today is cultivated worldwide in tropical, semitropical, and temperate climates."
Fasolea (Phaseolus vulgaris) este o plantă leguminoasă agățătoare anuală care este originară din America și este întrebuințată în bucătărie. (...) De la fasole se pot consuma atât păstaia tânără cât și bobul uscat. 
Principalele țări producătoare de fasole uscată sunt:
Brazilia - 3,2 milione tone
India - 3,0 milione tone
Birmania - 1,7 milione tone
China - 1,2 milione tone
SUA - 1,1 milione tone
"Bean (/ˈbiːn/) is a common name for large plant seeds used for human food or animal feed of several genera of the family Fabaceae (alternately Leguminosae).
The term bean originally referred to the seed of the broad or fava bean,[citation needed] but was later expanded to include members of the New World genus Phaseolus, such as the common bean and the runner bean, and the related genus Vigna. The term is now applied generally to many other related plants such as Old World soybeans, peas, chickpeas (garbanzos), vetches, and lupins.[citation needed]
Bean is sometimes used as a synonym of pulse,[citation needed] an edible legume, though the term pulses is normally reserved for leguminous crops harvested for their dry grain. The term bean usually excludes crops used mainly for oil extraction (such as soybeans and peanuts), as well as those used exclusively for sowing purposes (such as clover and alfalfa). Leguminous crops harvested green for food, such as snap peas, snow peas, and so on, are not considered beans, and are classified as vegetable crops. According to United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization the term bean should include only species of Phaseolus; however, a strict consensus definition has proven difficult because in the past, several species such as Vigna angularis (azuki bean), mungo (black gram), radiata (green gram), aconitifolia (moth bean)) were classified as Phaseolus and later reclassified. The use of the term bean to refer to species other than Phaseolus thus remains. In some countries, the term bean can mean a host of different species.
In English usage, the word bean is also sometimes used to refer to the seeds or pods of plants that are not in the family leguminosae, but which bear a superficial resemblance to true beans—for example coffee beans, castor beans and cocoa beans (which resemble bean seeds), and vanilla beans, which superficially resemble bean pods."
"are one of the longest-cultivated plants. Broad beans, also called fava beans, in their wild state the size of a small fingernail, were gathered in Afghanistan and the Himalayan foothills. In a form improved from naturally occurring types, they were grown in Thailand since the early seventh millennium BCE, predating ceramics. They were deposited with the dead in ancient Egypt. Not until the second millennium BCE did cultivated, large-seeded broad beans appear in the Aegean, Iberia and transalpine Europe. In the Iliad (late-8th century) is a passing mention of beans and chickpeas cast on the threshing floor.
Beans were an important source of protein throughout Old and New World history, and still are today."
(...) Most of the kinds commonly eaten fresh or dried, those of the genus Phaseolus, come originally from the Americas, being first seen by a European when Christopher Columbus, during his exploration of what may have been the Bahamas, found them growing in fields."
Phaseolus vulgaris, 
"the common bean, string bean, field bean, flageolet bean,[French bean, garden bean, haricot bean, pop bean, or snap bean, is a herbaceous annual plant grown worldwide for its edible fruit, either the dry seed or the unripe fruit, both of which are referred to as beans. The leaf is also occasionally used as a vegetable, and the straw can be used for fodder. Along with other species of the bean genus (Phaseolus), it is classified botanically into the legume family (Fabaceae), most of whose members acquire nitrogen through an association with rhizobia, a species of nitrogen-fixing bacteria.

The common bean is a highly variable species with a long history of cultivation. All of the wild members of the species have a climbing habit, but the many cultivars are classified as bush beans or pole beans, depending on their style of growth. These include the kidney bean, the navy bean, the pinto bean, and the wax bean. The other major types of commercially grown bean are the runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus) and the broad bean (Vicia faba)."

"Beans are a heliotropic plant, meaning that the leaves tilt throughout the day to face the sun. At night, they go into a folded "sleep" position."

About the cooked beans


Baked beans "is a dish containing beans, sometimes baked but, despite the name, usually stewed, in a sauce. Most commercial canned baked beans are made from haricot beans, also known as navy beans – a variety of Phaseolus vulgaris in a sauce. (...)
Canned baked beans are used as a convenience food. They may be eaten hot or cold straight from the can as they are fully cooked.
Baked beans are also sometimes served with chips, waffles, or the like."
" Fasole cu cârnați ("beans with sausages", Romanian pronunciation: [faˈsole ku kɨrˈnat͡sʲ]) is a very popular Romaniandish, consisting of baked beans and sausages. A variation replaces the sausages with afumătură (smoked meat).
Beans with smoked meat
Also a traditional Army dish, fasole cu cârnați is prepared by Army cooks and served freely to the crowds during the National Day celebrations (on 1 December) in Bucharest and Alba Iulia."
