Wild Gourmet Pea of Umbria: "Roveja di Casteluccio"

1 Review | Write a Review
The so called Wild Gourmet Pea of Umbria is actually known by the fancy Italian name in its homeland: "Roveja di Casteluccio". This scrumptious pea is raised in the special valley beneath the Umbrian mountain village of Casteluccio. It is known by historians that the Pea has been raised for more than a thousand years in this area. The locals make a special pea porridge" out of these speckled "wild" peas. This is a very easy pea to grow if you have good cool growing conditions. Certainly a very rare pea in America, this is a living tradition in Italy. This pea is one of the "special" varieties designated by the Italian Slow Food Committee as a national heritage variety.

What are the pros? I have read it is a great food

What are the cons? Lack of growing conditions.


There are no details for growing this pea in the description. Information such as best soil type, temperature range, vine or bush, how and when to harvest, storage, etc. I pruchased two packs which gave me 66 seeds. There are some internet sites with information but I cannot read Italian. I will grow them in two different areas and provide the results this fall.
