What are the pros? Very pretty plant
What are the cons? lack of info; low yeild
These seeds make a fine-leaved, fern-like plant with tiny, delicate flowers. The plants are about 8 inches tall and maybe 8 inches in diameter. Even on very hot, dry days, I can run my hand through the tiny leaves and feel dampness on my fingers. They appear to aspirate water to some degree. Early on, I did lose several plants before realizing I was overwatering them. Small pink flowers formed small green pods along the branches, about 6-7 per limb, so approximately 18-20 pods per plant maybe? These pods felt quite empty for several weeks. Yesterday (July 4) I checked them and all the pods were firm and filled with one green chickpea per pod. The chickpeas taste wonderfully fresh and are firm. I harvested off the patch and rinsed them, then put them on a screen to dry out somewhat and plan on shelling them today. I would love to plant these in a flower bed next spring. They were a bit fussy regarding amount of moisture but worth growing. I will definitely grow them again.
