Oranges all year round
A character that appeals to consumers
A product at the heart of your strategy
One full year with four varieties of oranges:
Newhall is the first variety to be harvested. It is put up for sale at the beginning of November until the end of February. The fruit has a slightly oval shape and a dark orange colour. There’s a small belly button and there are no seeds. The bark is smooth and the pulp is very sweet, juicy and very tasty. An excellent fruit on the palate, Newhall is undoubtedly one of the most popular varieties.
Three other varieties complete the Portuguese orange range under PGI. Navelate (early February to mid-April), a late fruit with a medium size, very juicy fruit with very fine pulp. Its flavour peaks between the first weeks of March and mid-April. Mid-February, another variety is available until mid-May: Lanelate. It is also a seedless variety with sweet and pleasant pulp, with a low acid content. Finally, from the beginning of April until October Valencia-Late, the world’s most cultivated variety, takes over. The juice is abundant and of good taste. Harvesting takes place all summer long.
An orange at the top of its taste qualities!
Our oranges are intensely coloured, juicy and full of flavour. Varietal selection and the preference given to the Algarve’s terroir respond to strategies oriented towards quality and gustatory regularity. These qualities are conferred on oranges thanks to several decisive factors in their cultivation: the soil, the harvesting process and the presentation.
Leaf orange is the flagship product of our range. It responds to a desire to offer consumers a fruit that is at the top of its maturity and visibly more natural. The product can be efficiently installed in shelves to complement existing ranges.
