The Gungo bean is the next most popular bean protein in Jamaica right after the Red Peas. The Jamaican Gungo pea is a leguminous shrub that can attain heights of 5 m. This plant probably evolved in South Asia and appeared about 2000 BC in West Africa, which is considered a second major center of origin. The slave trade took the Jamaican Gungo pea to the West Indies, where its use as bird feed led to the name “Jamaican Gungo pea” in 1692. You can get the Jamaican Gungo Peas in your nearest food market where it is sold in cans and mostly imported from Jamaica or Central America. Check out the recipe below.
