"Orion" Chickpea Seeds
The orion chickpea comes from Sasketchewan University and is bred for shorter season production. It is quite productive with white flowers and a consistent population. Fairly drought tolerant. Eat as a snack fresh from the pod when green for a light nutty treat, or use in salads and hummus once colour appears and size it at its fullest. Alternatively, you can let them dry on the plant for storage and then soak them before use to rehydrate. An unexpectedly beautiful crop to have in the garden. Pretty foliage too!
