Cicerchia [Chickling]
[only on request]

ORIGIN: Italy Supply Chain

The Romans defined this legume with the term cicercula and, at the time, there were about twenty cultivated species. Over time, production has progressively declined until it disappears and only recently, few farmers in central and southern Italy have started to cultivate this ancient plant again. All our Circerchia grows in farms with which we maintain direct collaboration. The Cicerchia is much appreciated by gourmets for its intense taste and by farmers for its rusticity. Able to grow even in the most impoverished soils, Circerchia is a plant resistant to drought and disease.
