Lentil i Villalba' takes its name from the Sicilian village of its origin, Villalba, a small rural centre in the centre of Sicily, in the province of Caltanissetta, founded in the 18th century by Marquis Palmeri.A Villalba. The cultivation of lentils (like other grain legumes) was intended to provide a source of vegetable protein for the diet of the families of farmers who populated the village. The local farmers, starting from inhomogeneous genetic material, began to practice the classic mass selection at the end of the 19th century, using the largest seeds obtained from the so-called 'ammannata' as breeding material. This practice, over the years, succeeded in fixing in the population of this ecotype the character of macrosperm (the average diameter of the grain reaches 6-8 mm) with a typical green colouring of the tegument (external part).
