Chickpea Seeds

Chickpea ‘Principe’ – Cicer arietinum.

Chickpeas make very attractive plants, with feathery foliage and pretty veined flowers, followed by pods containing 2 fresh chickpeas which can be used in a variety of Tuscan recipes.

Try Tuscan soup with chick peas, chopped tomatoes, garlic, rosemary, balsamic vinegar and Parmesan cheese.

Chick peas give a distinctive nutty flavour to minestrone and curries too, and are an essential ingredient of hummus.

Chick peas dry brilliantly for use during the winter months, and the quality of your home-grown chickpeas will often be far superior to the canned ones you can buy.

Sowing

Annual: Choose a sunny position in the garden. Sow 2 cm deep in seed compost under cover in early spring to get a head start or sow direct outside from late spring to early summer so they pop up after the risk of frost has past.

Make sure to grow them in well-prepared, well weeded composted ground as they like a bit of moisture in the soil.

How your gift is doing good

At the Eden Project we believe plants are important to the future of us and our planet. Through our gardens and Biomes we inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural world around them - and to want to help preserve it. The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.

Find out more about our plans to build a canopy walkway to continue our educational work around rainforests.
