The produce of puglia


I Legumi dell'Alta Murgia

The Chickling pea is an ancient pulse, used to make soups and focaccias since the time of ancient Egypt. It is gaining popularity again, thanks to its nutritional properties and is well suited for cultivation in the Alta Murgia area, even in poor and difficult soils thanks to its resistance to drought and low temperatures.

This pulse is irregular in shape, has a delicate yet distinctive flavour and is like a cross between a chickpea and a broad bean.
