Chickpea growing the garden with mulch for weed control

(Cicer arietinum)

One of Carol Deppe's varieties, Hannan Popbean was developed to produce reliably under organic conditions and is highly resistant to soil-borne and aphid-borne diseases. As its name suggests, Hannan popbean is enjoyed as a popbean in addition to the many traditional uses of garbanzos that include spreads, dips and soups. Chickpeas are typically fickle in northern gardens but their value to our pantry nutritionally, motivated us to trial them. Hannan Popbean's 2-foot tall bushes surprised us with a modest harvest of small pods which is encouraging for short-season gardeners.

Please note the plants of this species are commonly referred to as chickpeas and garbanzos interchangeably.

November 2022 Note: after several seasons of trialing this variety, in all honesty it fails to impress. For the foreseeable future, Hannan Popbean is off my grow list.
