  • Cajanus cajan is a perennial legume from the family Fabaceae. It is a perennial shrub distributed in the tropics and subtropics of Asia, Africa and the Americas, and known as pigeon pea. It is grown in low-input and risk-prone marginal environments and is often subjected to water stress at different stages of growth and development. In China, its leaves are used as a folk medicine to relieve swelling and pain, kill parasites and treat varicella[1] [2].
