The area of Casalborgone is particularly ideal for the cultivation of peas, preferring soils with a balanced distribution of sand, silt, and clay, a neutral reaction (pH 6.5-7), a temperature between 13° and 18°C (it stops growing when the temperature goes under 4-5°C, although the plant can stand, only in the first stages of growth, temperatures a little lower than 0°C), and a high luminosity.
In the past, Casalborgone Pea included the varieties Quarantin, Casalot, and Barchetta, mentioned according to their precociousness, whose seed was produced by the agricultural holdings. About 50 years ago, with the birth of the commercial variety Espresso Generoso, such varieties have been almost entirely replaced, to the extent that today they are mainly cultivated to maintain the seed.
Casalborgone Pea has a small pod (max 5 cm), smooth and light green seed with a small diameter, sweet taste, and mellow consistency. It is particularly suitable to prepare soups.
