has a reputation for high quality oranges, something
that reflects the 50 year’s experience with this crop.
The most important orange variety on the island is “Valencia”
or “Valencia Late”.
Is an excellent
juice orange, with excellent taste and balanced sweetness. Our oranges have
a medium to large size, round to oval shape, orange colour with a finely textured
skin and thin peel. Fruits are usually seedless or with only few seeds. What
particularly characterises our variety is the fruit’s bright orange
coloured flesh which results to a deep orange coloured juice of rich flavour
and aroma and of a content of over 60%. Our oranges are also firm and heavy
for their size.
