Chickpea is one of the oldest varieties of legume and is highly valued, so much so that it is one of the most widely produced leguminous crops in the world. Its microgreens, however, are no different: easy to grow, they are rich in protein and minerals and have a crunchy texture perfect for any dish.


Organic Chickpea
Organic Chickpeas, botanical name Cicer arietinum, are an excellent choice for those new to microgreens. These small seedlings, with their quick and easy growth and delicate aroma reminiscent of hazelnuts, will give you satisfaction both when you grow them and when you eat them.

How can I grow it?
Producing organic Chickpea sprouts is quick and easy, even at home.
We recommend soaking the seed in cold water for 5/6 hours.
After that, place the seeds in a tray with potting soil and keep it covered for 3/4 days; this step is essential to allow the seeds to germinate as evenly as possible, avoiding direct sunlight hitting them and promoting proper moisture inside your pot.
Afterwards, you can remove the lid and continue growing the organic Chickpea microgreens in sunlight, watering them a couple of times a day. Check them and taste them often, to make sure that you harvest them when they have reached the perfect consistency and flavour. Usually, this happens after 10/12 days.

How can I eat it?
I microgreens biologici di Cece sono ottimi da consumare crudi, come snack green e super nutriente, oppure come guarnizione a minestre, piatti di carne e di pesce, insalate e panini.

Organic Chickpea seeds may contain traces of soy, mustard, wheat, gluten and grasses.
Store the seeds in a cool, ventilated place, between 8° and 20° C, away from weather, changes in humidity and direct sunlight.
