Can You Plant a Chickpea?

A chickpea (garbanzo bean) can be planted, but the chickpea needs to be a certified seed and not out of a bag of dried chickpeas packaged for consumption. Plant seeds 1 to 2 inches deep and press firmly. Chickpea seeds are expensive, so be sure to consult the package instructions carefully.
