TriviaThe word “friariello” may derive from Castillan “friogrelos”, which means “winter broccoli”. Also, it might arise from “frijere”, which in Neapolitan means “to fry”. Anyway, there’s a strong connection between this vegetable and the city of Napoli: as a matter of fact, until the XVII century, Neapolitans were called “magnafoglie” (literally “leaf-eaters”), because of the intensive friarielli cultivation on the Vomero Hill (so called “ ‘o colle d’e friarielli, the friarielli’s hill), as well as for its wide culinary use, since this vegetable was poor and affordable to everyone.
