Kabouli Black Garbanzo Bean

This unique heirloom variety was collected in Kabul, Afghanistan. The 2’ plants produce unusual dark purple beans. The purple color comes from a pigment called anthocyanine, which enables seeds to sprout in cool soil, making this variety perfect for short season areas. Perfect for hummus and other Middle Eastern dishes.

Review:

I've never grown garbanzo beans before, so I decided to give these a try, hoping they'd grow well in cool weather. Wow, am I impressed. They grew great throughout the summer, though they weren't fond of the high-altitude sunlight and had a tendency to burn. Light shade is best at high altitudes for these guys. But this plant made it through the first hard frost, and then even our first snowfall! It finally died once the temps really dropped down, but if you're looking for a producer that's hardy, this one is it. I haven't eaten them yet because I only grew a couple plants to test how they would fare here, so I saved all the beans for next year. Can't wait to try them again!

Review:

this is the first time for me growing garbanzo, and will likely be my last. these grew fine, but were eaten again and again by some critters, field mice or something. the plants must have been tasty, because i started out with so many, and before any could mature there were none.

Review:

Very impressed with the production of this variety. The pods are not as large as the common varieties and neither are the seeds. But, as advertized it did very well in a colder climate. The plants survived temperatures as low as 35 degrees and highs of about 90 degrees. Beatiful small flowers and great looking branches that became loaded with seed pods. Flavor was very different than that of common varieties. But overall it was good.

Review:

Got these as an experiment this year since I love chick peas. They did great! I have a small garden, and only put in three plants since they were an experiment after all. Probably grew the best of anything I planted; I just pulled them out and most of the beans had dried perfectly in the pods. Haven't cooked with them yet, but I sure will! I live in upstate NY.
