Chickling Vetch, now forgotten legume, is grown almost exclusively in certain areas of Umbria and Marche. Also, known as “cecere” was widespread in many areas of our region. Today, after a period of almost complete divestment of crops, cultivation has been resumed in the Colfiorito’s plateau, at about 1000 meters. Like all legumes, it has interesting nutritional properties, both for the protein and starch high content, and for the low amount of fat.
