A Taste of the Middle East

Be an adventurer and explore Middle Eastern food and grow Middle Eastern seeds — including sesame, eggplant, cilantro, fava bean, flax and more!

Chickpeas are the most widely grown legume after soybeans. In addition to the familiar buff-colored type, smaller, dark brown-to-black forms are also known. The crop has been found in very ancient sites in Jericho, Greece and even France.
