About Calabrese PigsAbout Calabrese Pigs

rnrnThe origin of thernBlack Pig from Calabria is uncertain. There are two different hypotheses atrnpresent: according to one it would come from the Iberian stock, while the otherrnfrom the Roman one. Once it used to be present in vast areas of Calabria andrndistinguished into several local varieties, like Reggitana, Cosentino,rnOrielese, Lagonegrese, Catanzarese, Casalinga and others.


rnAll these animals had the common characteristic of a good unfat meat ideal tornthe sausage production, typical of that area.

rnrnThe present dayrnconsistency is very limited: the real typical examples, or those that resemblernthe original type, are very few. They give lean cuts, ham and shoulders havernquite good size.

rnrnMedium-sized pigsrnwith not entirely developed muscles but a solid bone structure.


rnThe limbs are not too long. The frontal nose profile is straight withrnmedium-large leaning ears, which they bear forward. The main color is blackrnbut sometimes some examples are spotted or have white socks.
