As part of the characterization and identification of varieties of chickpeas, we have undertaken prospecting and collection of plant material through the Wilaya of Tlemcen.In the present work two landrace Garbaansa and Bled, were used where the goal was to characterize and analyze the effect of the genotype environment interaction. The analysis of the morphometric data showed that the height of the plant depends in its expression of the genotype × environment interaction, the total number of pods per plant is unique to the genetics of the species and its expression is dependent on the genotype × environment interaction. The number of seeds per pod is a genotype-specific trait that is influenced by the environment and is the result of interaction between the latter two. The size of the chickpea grain is related to the environment, the genotype and the expression of which comes from the interaction of the medium × genotype
