The production of kiwis has found excellent conditions in the province of Verona. The cultivated area in the Veronese region covers about 2,000 hectares, representing some 80% of the kiwi investments in the Veneto region and 10% of national investments. Thanks to this soil, our kiwi yield has increased significantly over the years. The kiwi is enriched with vitamins C and E and with potassium.
Golden Delicious Apples
The Golden Delicious apple is mainly found in the southern Veronese area in the alluvial sections of the Adige River. This results in a yield with different organoleptic properties and colouring. Crunchy, low acidity, marked aroma and excellent, balanced flavour are the distinguishing properties of this variety, accompanied by basic skin colour characterized by typical golden streaking.

Our farms have been producing leafy greens for a few decades now, taking advantage of the favourable characteristics of the soil, which drains well and is enriched with organic substances. Enriched with water and fibre, leafy greens only have a few calories and therefore play an important role in the daily diet as they contain vitamins A, B, C and D and many mineral salts.
