Chickpea, White Kabuli (Cicer arietinum), packet of 50 seeds, organic


Family: Legume (Fabaceae)

Annual. 100 days to maturity.

Amazing foodstuff and N-fixing covercrop native to Turkey, an ancient cultigen dating back to the Neolithic.  Our’s is the large-seeded “White Kabuli.”   Easily grown in the home garden and oh so tasty!  Plant prefers full sun and good garden soil. Get started early–early spring frosts do not bother them, and they germinate fine in cool soil.   Prepare a fine seedbed and make shallow furrows 2 feet apart and 2 inches deep.  Barely cover seed and tamp securely.  Keep evenly moist until germination, which takes about a week.  Thin plants to 6 inches apart.  Cultivate as needed and disallow weeds.  When the pods become full, discontinue watering and allow to dry on the plant.  Harvest, thresh and winnow in the usual manner.  The green pods, by the way, are also edible.

50 seeds per packet, certified organically grown
