Carpino Fava Bean

The chalky clay soil around Carpino is perfect for cultivating fava beans, and one of the best varieties in all of Puglia is grown here. The beans are sown in October and November. Fertilizers are not used (in fact, the beans enrich the soil with nitrogen), nor other treatments; weeds are pulled up manually. Between June and July, when the plants turn yellow, they are cut down by hand and tied into sheaves (called “manocchi”) which are left to dry in the field. At the end of July the farmers thresh the beans and separate them from the straw.

Season

Harvested during summer months of June and July, and dried beans are available year-round

The plots planted with the beans are very small and the yield is quite modest. The Presidium is trying to keep the traditional cultivation method alive and to increase the production of this legume.
