Ancient Crop Variety


History
Chickpea is one of the first legumes cultivated in the eastern area of the Mediterranean. The varieties with small seeds and bent integument are more primitive than the ones with larger seeds and lighter color. In Navelli (L'Aquila), chickpeas coming from Spain were introduced in the early 19th century: they have gradually adapted to the territory varying their genotype and phenotype features.
