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.
The Gala apple has a particularly sweet flavour; its skin is with some yellow and it doesn’t have rust. It is a summer variety of apples which is picked in August and sold until Christmas.
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.
Abate Fetel Pears
Abate Fetel pears have very thin, rusty-yellow skin with golden, reddish tones. This fruit is bottle-shaped. Its pulp is firm and juicy, sugary and at the same time aromatic, and it is highly appreciated by consumers for its flavour, fragrance and juiciness.
The Conference pear is average in size and elongated, and its peduncle is long, thin and curved. Its skin is a burnished green-yellow with small visible lenticels when it is ripe. Its ivory pulp is quite juicy, sweet, aromatic and not very bitter, and it has a very pleasant flavour.
The Decana pear is a large rust-coloured fruit with a yellow-green, smooth skin dotted with numerous, small lenticels. The Decana pear has white, juicy, bittersweet and aromatic pulp. The fruit is delicate to handle but has a long shelf life.
The Kaiser pear has a rust-coloured skin against a burnished yellow background with numerous obvious lenticels. Its pulp is white, firm, slightly granular, juicy, bittersweet and aromatic.
The strawberry is one of the most important yields and is cultivated in protected agriculture to protect it from damage caused by temperatures and humidity. This results in autumn and spring yields marked by excellent organoleptic properties such as texture and a bright red colour.
It has a sweet, aromatic flavour and green skin. Ideal to eat when it’s fresh, it is the main variety used in industrial transformation to make fruit salad and fruit juice.
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.
Green, yellow and red peppers
The capsicum is an extremely generous plant, which we tunnel farm. The product picked is yellow, red and green. Our varieties are medium-long and stand out from the square product obtained in northern Europe and Spain. The capsicum has a sweet pulp with medium-large thickness.
Our courgettes are dark green and are cultivated in tunnels in the spring, and in the open field in the summer. Pieces weigh no more than 250 g and are between 17-21 cm long. They are picked every day to ensure a fresh, quality product.
We cultivate black round, black long and violet round aubergines. Our main production is the black round one, while the other two types are less important. Agronomic technique mainly involves greenhouse cultivation, resulting in a shinier and fresher product when it is picked. Compared with the open field product, the calyx and stalk are greener and brighter.
