Vigna aconitifolia is a drought-resistant legume, commonly grown in arid and semi-arid regions of India. It is commonly called mat bean, moth bean, matki or dew bean. The pods, sprouts and protein-rich seeds of this crop are commonly consumed in India. 

Moth bean is a creeping annual herbaceous plant which grows to approximately 40cm high. Yellow flowers develop into a brown pod 2.5 to 5cm in length, which holds 4 to 9 seeds inside.   

While dry sandy soil is most suitable for production, moth bean can tolerate a variety of soil types.
