Quercia Chikpea is a variety that was once widespread in the Marche but it has been almost disappeared. Only in recent years it has been reintroduced, thanks to the work of expert farmers. The chickpea is sown in the first week of April and the flowering period begins in June, while the ripening and harvesting takes place in August. These legumes are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins A, C and vitamin B9, essential for the production and cell renewal; therefore represents an excellent substitute for meat.
