Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Mucuna (Brazilian name). Leguminosae. Under this name several annual bean-like vines have been grown in the southern states for forage, green-manuring and ornament. The genus, as accepted by the standard works, has recently been divided, however, and the plants cultivated in this country are separated under Stizolobium (which see).

Mucuna, as thus re-defined (Bart, Bull. No. 141 Bur. PI. Ind., U. S. Dept. Agric., and Piper & Tracy, Bull. No. 179, same), is a genus of perennials, whereas Stizolobium is annual or essentially so; in Mucuna, the hilum on the seed is much elongated and band-like, extending nearly all the way around the seed; in Stizolobium, the hilum is linear, elevated and oblong-crateriform, extending from one-fifth to nearly one-fourth of the circumference of the seed; there are also marked differences in germination. As thus restricted, Mucuna appears to have no species cult. in this country.
