Oranges

Oranges of every kind are certainly the most widely grown fruit in Calabria, given that orange crops can be found virtually everywhere in the region, with fruit trees covering plains and steep slopes in equal measure, guaranteeing a natural, juicy, beautiful product without fail.

The orange has long been emblematic of vitamin C, health and the ability to combat seasonal ailments. Thanks to new conservation techniques and the mild Calabrian climate, fresh oranges can now be found for much of the year, meaning that you can always have the pleasure of a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning or a delicious fruit to finish a meal.

This thoroughgoing icon of Calabrian produce is grown widely by our producers as well, and especially around the Gioia Tauro Plain and the Ionian coast of Reggio Calabria, they dedicate many hectares of citrus orchards to oranges, ensuring that continuous production is possible for long periods and a product of the highest quality is guaranteed, perfect both for sale in the short term and for long journeys in refrigeration units to reach markets where Calabrian oranges are in greater and greater demand.
