Roveja [only on request]
ORIGIN: Italy supply chain
Legume of very ancient origin from the coloured seed that goes from dark green to brown-grey, before being tamed by man, it grew wild a little everywhere. Precisely for this reason, some researchers claim that it is a progenitor of the common pea. In past centuries it was cultivated on the whole Umbrian-Marche Apennine ridge, in particular on the Sibillini Mountains, also found at high altitudes. Today the cultivation of the roveja has been almost abandoned everywhere, and only a few purist farmers of the Val Nerina resist.
