Robiglio Pea

History
This pea variety was already widespread in the markets of L'Aquila since the 15th century. According to Miche Tenore (1831), one of the greatest 19th century Italian botanists, Robiglio pea, as far as the Kingdom of Naples was concerned, was cultivated only in Abruzzi. In Pizzoli (Province of L'Aquila), this legume was locally known as shepherds' pea.
