Whether grown between seasons or alongside a crop as a nitrogen-boosting companion plant, heirloom garbanzo bean seeds are traditionally sown for warm weather mowing to till and mulch into a sustainable organic green mulch. Unlike many taller legumes and grains, garbanzo is a low-growing crop and does not provide much relief against erosion and runoff. However, as a legume, organic garbanzo will benefit immensely from a legume inoculant to ensure its ability to maximize its nitrogen production in the soil.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eLatin Name:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cem\u003eCicer arietinum\u003c\/em\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eDays to Maturity:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e100 Days to Full Maturity - Annual Crop - Not Intended to Over-winter - All Zones in the U.S.A\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eGarden Light Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Full sun\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eGermination Rate:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eHigh – Open Pollinated\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSeeds for: \u003c\/strong\u003eFarm \u0026amp; Garden Vegetable \u0026amp; Cover Crop Seeds - Microgreens \u0026amp; Sprouts\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSeed Quality:\u003c\/strong\u003e Non-GMO - Heirloom - Premium Seeds \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSeeds Per Package:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\n\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e25 g- Wholesale - Approximately 66 Seeds\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e4 oz - Wholesale - Approximately 300 Seeds\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 lb - Wholesale - Approximately \u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e1,200 \u003c\/span\u003e Seeds\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e5 lb - Bulk - Approximately 6,000 Seeds\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e25 lb - Approximately 30,000 Seeds\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eMountain Valley Seed Company Brand - Independently Family Owned \u0026amp; Operated Small Seed Company - Premium Quality Seeds\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e"}

Bean Seeds - Black Garbanzo - Organic - Cover Crop

Non-GMO Cicer arietinum is a popular cover crop traditionally sown in the fall to replenish nitrogen content in garden soil while breaking up tough soils. Similar to Daikon radish and mustards, garbanzo seeds grow a deep taproot that can help prepare fields and grows spaces that have gone untouched in years or have never been cultivated. Whether grown between seasons or alongside a crop as a nitrogen-boosting companion plant, heirloom garbanzo bean seeds are traditionally sown for warm weather mowing to till and mulch into a sustainable organic green mulch. Unlike many taller legumes and grains, garbanzo is a low-growing crop and does not provide much relief against erosion and runoff. However, as a legume, organic garbanzo will benefit immensely from a legume inoculant to ensure its ability to maximize its nitrogen production in the soil.
