Garbanzo Bean, Kabouli Black 1
FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

Perfect for making hummus and other Middle Eastern dishes. This unique heirloom variety was collected in Kabul, Afghanistan. The 2-foot tall plants produce dark purple garbanzo beans. The purple color comes from a pigment called anthocyanine which enables seeds to sprout in cool soil, making this variety ideal for short growing seasons. (105 days)

Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.

Planting Instructions:
Sow beans 1 to 2 inches deep when danger of frost is past. Soaking seeds 1 to 2 hours before planting will speed germination. Beans will rot if soil is too cold or very damp. Sow bush-types 6 to 12 inches apart in beds, pole-types 6 inches apart in rows. Provide support for poll-types.

Harvest for snaps when pods are good sized; keep snaps well picked, as production slows as seed matures. All varieties of strings will develop in over-mature pods.
