Garbanzos (Chickpeas) are one of humanities first domesticated crops. Domesticated chickpeas have been found at several early archaeological sites, including the Pre-Pottery Neolithic sites of Tell el-Kerkh (ca. 8,000 BC) and Dja'de (11,000-10,300 calendar years ago cal BP, or about 9,000 BC) in Syria, Cayonu (7250-6750 BC), Hacilar (ca 6700 BC), and Akarcay (7280-8700 BP) in Turkey; and Jericho (8350 BC to 7370 BC) in the West Bank.

The Black Kabouli is an heirloom from Afghanistan. Black chickpeas differ in taste from their beige relatives. More smoky, nutty, and they stay more firm when cooked. These seeds we acquired from Rich Pecoraro of Masa Seed Foundation who started growing them in New Mexico 30 years ago and currently grows them in Colorado.

Plant in the spring, same timing as peas. Bushy growth habit. 2 seeds per pod.
