Vicia Faba - The broad beans come from an ancient plant, originally from Persia or North Africa and the first traces of them date back to the Bronze and Iron Ages. They are the first legume seeds consumed by man. Typical food product in peasant Italy. Formerly used not only as a legume but, after having transformed it into flour, also in the preparation of bread, focaccia and polenta. Already in the early 1800s there are some literary works (for example "La Fisica Appula" by P.F. Michelangelo Manicone of 1806) which attest to how the territory of San Paolo di Civitate is particularly suitable for the cultivation of broad beans. Today it remains a widely used and versatile legume for the preparation of many dishes. The nutritional contents are reported in the “nutritional contents” section. Di Nunzio beans are grown in Puglia in the upper Tavoliere della Daunia area, particularly in the grounds surrounding the municipality of San Paolo di Civitate.
