Origin of garbanzo beans

Garbanzo beans, better known as chickpeas, were originally cultivated in the Mediterranean basin and eventually spread to India and parts of Africa. Over time, garbanzo beans were brought to other subtropical regions by Spanish and Portuguese explorers and by migrating Indians. Today these beans are enjoyed worldwide and are mainly produced in Mexico, India, Turkey, and Ethiopia.

Garbanzo BeansOur USDA certified organic garbanzo beans have a smooth delicious texture. Their color and shape can vary based on what type of beans they are. There are two main types—Mexican and Middle Eastern. Mexican garbanzo beans are a lighter, whitish color and have a round shape. Middle Eastern garbanzo beans, on the other hand, are darker and have a slightly more jagged looking shape. These beans have a thicker shell that is dense with nutrients. These beans are both nutritionally and culturally diverse and will make an exciting addition to your table!
