The choice of chickpeas cultivation in our "La Catena" estate comes from the exceptional taste and size of "Principe" variety. Considered the rarity of this kind of chickpeas, we save the amount of seed needed for the sowing of the following year, preserving its pureness. In addition, the chickpea, being a leguminous, is also an excellent nitrogen fixator, therefore, in coltural rotation's dynamics, is perfect to alternate with cereals
