/ˈlɛɡjuːm/ [leg-guum]
1 A leguminous plant (member of the pea family), especially one grown as a crop.
1.1 A seed, pod, or other edible part of a leguminous plant, used as food.
1.2 Botany The long seed pod of a leguminous plant.

Mid 17th century (denoting the edible portion of the plant): from French légume, from Latin legumen, from legere ‘to pick’ (because the fruit may be picked by hand).


Peas understand that it amazes me that we have bean sew off our feed here that we have not picked legume for our word harvest before today.
(Perhaps you want to give thanks for that after reading the sample sentence. Frankly, I think I nailed it!)
