Pulses such as pea, field bean and lentil are one of the first domesticated plant species in the world. The earliest archaeobotanical data on these in Caucasus region date from the sixth millennium BC. This research attested the words denoting pea in 25 and the words denoting field bean in 15 modern Caucasian languages. They originated from two Proto-Caucasian roots, *qōr'ā, denoting exclusively pea, and *hōwł(ā), denoting both bean and lentil. The results confirm a prominent role the most ancient Eurasian pulses have been playing in the everyday life of the North Caucasian peoples and witness a remarkable lexicological continuum throughout millennia.
