Answer: Garbanzo Beans (Cicer arietinum), are a cool-weather crop that has cultural requirements similar to peas. Plant in the spring and each bush will grow to about two feet tall, producing an abundance of two-seeded pods. In your region, you can start your seeds outdoors in February or March, in a sunny site, with rich, well draining soil. Incorporate some organic matter into your soil prior to planting, and plant seeds about an inch deep. Water well after planting and supply water when the soil begins to dry out. The pods will be ready to harvest within 100 days.
