Image of BEAN GREEN DAMAGE (CHICKPEA)
Immature, Green Chickpeas are undesirable because they tend to produce off flavors and, when canned, turn a grayish color creating a moldy appearance. For this reason, beans with any discernible amount of green are damage. (Suspect kernels may be scraped to confirm discoloration).
This illustration is not intended to represent any minimum coverage or color intensity requirement.
