Elaeagnus umbellata Elaeagnus umbellata is known as Japanese silverberry, umbellata oleaster, autumn olive, autumn elaeagnus, or spreading oleaster. The species is indigenous to eastern Asia and ranges from the Himalayas eastwards to Japan. Because it fixes atmospheric nitrogen in its roots, it often grows vigorously and competitively in infertile soils.
Elaeagnus umbellata The flowers are borne in the leaf axils in clusters of 1-7. They are pale yellowish-white, fragrant, (often heavily fragrant) and have a four-lobed corolla 1 cm long. The fruit is a small round drupe 1/4 to 1/3 inches (0.65 to 0.85 cm) in diameter. The unripe fruit is silvery-scaled and yellow. It ripens to red, dotted with silver or brown.
Vigna umbellata Ricebean’s distribution pattern indicates great adaptive polymorphism for diverse environments, with its distribution ranging from humid tropical to sub-tropical, to sub-temperate climate. The presumed centre of domestication is Indo-China. It is thought to be derived from the wild form "V. umbellata" var "gracilis", with which it is cross-fertile, and which is distributed from Southern China through the north of Vietnam, Laos and Thailand into Myanmar and India (Tomooka "et al.", 1991). Studies of the genetic and eco-geographical relationships among the wild relatives of "Vigna" species were made by Saravanakumar "et al." (2001).
Vigna umbellata Ricebean is valuable for its ability to fix nitrogen in depleted soils and in mixed cropping with local varieties of maize, as well as for its beneficial role in preventing soil erosion. The crop receives almost no inputs, and is grown on residual fertility and moisture and in marginal and exhausted soils. Anecdotal evidence indicates that the area and production of ricebean in Nepal is declining due to the introduction of high yielding maize varieties and increasing use of chemical fertilizers, while consumption is decreasing due to increased availability of more preferred pulses in the local markets. No modern plant breeding has been done and only landraces with low yield potential are grown. These have to compete with other summer legumes such as soybeans ("Glycine max"), black gram, cowpea, common beans ("Phaseolus vulgaris") and horse gram ("Mactrotyloma uniflorum"). Other production constraints that limit the production of ricebean include small and fragmented land holdings and declining productivity.
Vigna umbellata Wild forms are typically fine-stemmed, freely-branching and small-leaved, with a twining habit, photoperiod sensitivity and indeterminate growth (Lawn, 1995). Flowering is asynchronous, and there is a tendency to hard seeds. In many areas, landraces which retain many of these characteristics persist, in particular with regard to daylight sensitivity, growth habit and hard seeds. Seed colour is variable, but commonly red or yellow. The red type is commonly named in Chinese, literally meaning 'red small bean'. It's considered an herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Vigna umbellata Ricebean is most often served as a dal, either soaked overnight and boiled with a few spices, or cooked in a pressure cooker. Apart from various recipes for dal soups and sauces, pulses are also used in a number of other ways, either whole, cooked or roasted, as flour, or ground to make various deep fried dishes or snacks. Some recipes are specific to particular pulses, but many are open to substitution. The consumption of green pods as a vegetable has been recorded but is not widespread, although the indeterminate growth habit of many varieties is beneficial in providing a steady supply of green pods over long periods of the year.
Vigna umbellata Special concern for flatulence-producing substances is important when a pulse is promoted for human consumption (Smil, 1997). Revilleza "et al." (1990) tested the content of known flatulence-producing oligosaccharides in common legumes from the Philippines and ranked them on their flatulence-producing potential: Sam-samping ("Clitoria ternatea") > hyacinth bean ("Lablab purpureus", syn. "Dolichos lablab" L) > Lima bean ("Phaseolus lunatus") > swordbean ("Canavalia gladiata") > ricebean > jack bean ("Canavalia ensiformis"). Two different varieties of ricebean contained 2.25 and 2.55% oligosaccharides. Kaur & Kawatra (2000) measured the effect of soaking, open pan cooking, pressure cooking, sprouting and combinations of these. All led to a significant reduction of the content of flatus-producing sugars, although the most effective was a combination of sprouting and pressure cooking.
Vigna umbellata While most legumes contain one or several enzyme inhibitors and similar antinutritive or toxic factors (Smil, 1997), the content of such substances appears to be low in ricebean.
Vigna umbellata Ricebean is valuable as a high class fodder which is known to increase milk production in livestock.
Strophostyles umbellata Strophostyles umbellata, commonly known as the pink fuzzybean or wild bean, is a species of perennial flowering plant in the Fabaceae family. It is native to fields and woods in the southeastern and central United States. It blooms from June to September.
