Garbanzos aren't a true "new world" bean, but Rancho Gordo loves them so much and the imported crops tend to be so old and dusty that they make this one of their California crops.
Cooking suggestions: Obviously they're classic for hummus and as a key ingredients in a green salad, but they're great in soups, too. For salads, try skipping the lettuce and go for the crunch. Celery, carrots, onions, garbanzos (chickpeas) and your favorite dressing make for a great salad.
