The Solfino Bean: an ancient bean varietal of LE Marche | Le Marche and Food |

The Solfino Bean has returned to the Marche region and specifically, to Serra de’ Conti. Small, round and pale yellow (like sulphur from which it takes its name), this bean variety was commonly cultivated in the central regions of Italy (Marche, Tuscany and Umbria) in the past. Nearing extinction, it has been brought “back to life“ and cultivated in several areas. It is now once again being grown in the Marche region, as well.
