Laverino is a small town of just one hundred inhabitants set in the Marche mountains near the border with Umbria, on the Cornello pass. Right here, in the fertile soils lapped by the Potenza River, this bean arrived in the Marche region and found its ideal habitat in the 16th century thanks to the Spanish and Portuguese, like all the other varieties of Phaseolus vulgaris.

The seed is white, medium-small in size, slightly elongated and the plant can reach up to two or three meters in height.

The delicate taste and the very thin peel, which allows its rapid cooking, are its most appreciated characteristics.
