It is a white bean with a very thin pod. It is a close relative of the Zolfino bean, with which it shares several features, among which the cultivation area: Valdarno. It has a very delicate taste and an unmistakable peanut aftertaste. It has been cultivated in the valley from time immemorial: as a matter of fact, written evidences have been found in documents dating back to the Napoleonic period. It is an irreplaceable ingredient of the bread soup, a dish which was very used by farmers in the past and which is appreciated still today.
