CITRINOVA ORANGES | OUR VALENCIAN ORCHARD
To speak of oranges is to identify with a land of blue skies, mild Mediterranean climate, and a special light that only a painter of the quality of Sorolla knew how to capture in his paintings, obviously we speak of Valence.
And it is from there, from where according to the ancient chronicles grew the first oranges brought by the Arabs from distant China, using their trees more as ornamentals than as fruit trees of habitual consumption.
As we delve deeper into the study of citrus fruits we will see that one of the most prestigious populations in its cultivation is Carcaixent, not only producer of this wonderful fruit but also with a large export industry that in the late nineteenth century and until the mid-twentieth century, was able to get its products throughout Europe.
In our garden, a small family farm of more than a century and a half ago, we continue to elaborate our mandarins and oranges with the same affection and enthusiasm that our ancestors dedicated over the years improving the quality of them.
Today the means and sales channels are constantly evolving and we wanted to take advantage of their advantages so that our customers can be part of being able to taste our fruits as ourselves when we tear them out when we walk among the trees, choose a piece and taste it in the middle of the field.
The development of communications allows us to be closer to our customers, every day fewer customers and more friends, who call us asking when we are going to have oranges, and to whom we must explain that it is not yet the time, that they need the cold winter to have their best color and flavor.
Also to tell them that the corresponding order will not arrive because it rains and has not been able to be collected. Our products are not kept in chambers, nor are they taken before the hour to give them color later, much less have anything to do with oranges imported from other continents that are often sold as Valencian oranges, the one we serve them are high quality products, selected and collected hours before being sent to their homes, that is what distinguishes us and at the same time satisfies us when we receive calls from you, our customers, to tell us that the oranges received are excellent, that they have nothing to do with those bought in the supermarket or the neighborhood store.
We are happy to see that they are to your liking, that is our goal that encourages us to continue working for all of you.
