Cicer arientinum

100 days.

Diverse population of short season garbanzos selected to perform well in hot weather. Bred by Joseph Lofthouse of Landrace Garden Seeds in Paradise, Utah. Vigorous bush plants do well with plenty of space and are great ornamental plants. Leaves turn from green to red as the beans dry down in late summer.

How to grow it: 

Plant shortly after the ground can be worked in spring. Plant 1" deep, thin to 1' apart, with rows 18" apart. Allow plants to dry down in late summer. Harvest by cutting down the whole dry plant into a bag. Free seeds from pods by beating the bag, or driving over it, and use a fan to separate chaff from beans.
