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.
Cucumbers are medium-short and are only cultivated in greenhouses to anticipate transplanting and extend harvesting until November. The product (less than 270 g) is picked daily to ensure it is healthy and fresh and has an excellent shelf life.
Due to its mild-humid climate, the province of Verona is particularly suitable for cultivating this delicious vegetable. The asparagus stands out for its meaty consistency and a very delicate flavour. There are several asparagus varieties based on flavour, appearance and type of cultivation. The white asparagus - typical in Verona - is cultivated in deep soil with no light, while the asparagus cultivated in open fields takes on a green colouring as a result of photosynthesis. The asparagus is enriched with fibre, vitamins A and C, mineral salts and iron.
