    "Pea" and "bean" are names given to certain species of legume. As far as I'm aware, they're mostly given to different groups (ie most things called peas are more related to other things called peas than they are to things called beans, and vice versa), but there's some overlap.

    They are indeed a bean as poldi2 pointed out.

      You're right Jane. But they are considered a bean according to the article at the link that I provided. Thanks for the thumbs down!

    Both peas and beans are legumes.
