Hare Chhole #2 Green (Green Indian Garbanzo) Chickpea

1 Review | Write a Review

This is an amazing emerald green chickpea from India. The cultivation of Chickpeas goes back to antiquity, They have been farmed from Spain to Italy to Pakistan and India. Historically some of the biggest production areas for chickpeas has been in the sandy soils of northern India. In the Punjab region chickpeas are a food mainstay, and there is great diversity in the crop. Joe has called this beautiful green unnamed variety “ Hare Chhole #2” after a variety that was developed for Punjabi farmers in the 60’s or 70’s. It is an incredible green color and although green seeded dry chickpeas are known in some parts of India it is all but unknown in the west. Americans in general eat very few chickpeas (garbanzos)( less than a pound a year), however, they are very nutritious and easy to grow in many parts of the country. The do well and germinate even with quite cool temperatures and either prefer coolness or dryness, but not heat and lots of water! The mature not yet dried pods can be boiled, and the seed extracted as a wonderful appetizer. Having a gorgeous green chickpea in the garden isn’t bad either!

What are the pros? Beautiful plant

What are the cons? None


I started this from seed under lights so I could get it in before the heat, heavy rains and humidity arrived here. It has done very well so far but I have been unable to find much in the way of information about what it should look like when it's ready for harvest. I kept thinking it needed to be larger before I picked the little pods and am noticing that some of them seem to be turning black in the pods. Any info about this plant would be very helpful! The color of the beans is a lovely green and the plant is lovely looking with delicate leaves and tiny pink flowers.
