Hannan Popbean Chickpea CO
Hannan Popbean was developed to produce reliably under organic conditions and is highly resistant to soil-borne and aphid-borne diseases. Productive 2-foot tall bushes. Plant mid-March through April in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island regions. Later plantings may not yield seeds. Seedlings are freeze-hardy. Plant at or thin to 8 inches. Needs no irrigation in the maritime Northwest. Harvest when plants are dry, usually late July. We don't recommend this variety for regions where the ground is frozen into April. In our experience, these do not reliably “pop” like popcorn but this may be possible with further selection and breeding. The greens are edible and add great diversity to mixed salads. Originally Bred by Carol Deppe.
Approximately 88 seeds (~26g) per packet
