Can there be something more refreshing during the summertime than a watermelon? With almost 95% water content, the watermelon is the fruit that contains the most water. Its high hydration and sweet taste, make this fruit the star of the summer.

They belong to the family of pumpkin plants and are originally from tropical Africa. The most popular varieties vary between 3 and 8 kilos. Meanwhile, however, there are also the popular miniature watermelons weighing between 1.8 - 2.4 kilos. The current largest plantations of watermelons are situated in the Mediterranean area! There are those with seeds, seedless, with red pulp and even with yellow pulp. The optimum degree of maturity is achieved during the summer. This fruit is also distinguished by its high content of vitamin A, C and E and by an abundant portion of minerals beneficial to the human body, for example potassium. Because the watermelon has very few calories, it is an ideal meal for those who want to lose weight.

12. SEP 2016

This summer we amplified and modernized our research field. Apart from citrus fruits we now cultivate a lot of other fruit species.

For a couple of years now our quality technicians have observed on this research field the most important citrus varieties. Oranges, mandarins, lemons and grapefruits grow there on more than 80 trees and give us interesting information about growing conditions and season development.

campoex2news

For a better protection of the fruits we have now covered this research field with a net. This also gives us the possibility to cultivate integrated farming where the natural enemies of the vermin are used for pest control. In an extra section different stone fruit and  seedless grape species were planted as well.

campoex3news

In front of each plant there is a detailed information which helps us to explain the characteristics and differences of each variety to the clients visiting us. On additional bill boards they get an overview of harvesting seasons and grouping of the different fruit species.

pluot16newsa pluot? what is it actually?

5. JUL 2016

A Pluot is a natural hybrid between plum and apricot. We can enjoy these rich fruits from the end of June until September.

The hybrid between plum and apricot is called Plumcot. As a result you get a fruit which is 50% plum and 50% apricot. Crossbreeding this fruit with another plum evolves into the Pluot. The plum gives this relatively young fruit its smooth, brilliant skin and its crisp and juicy texture. In unification with the apricot the skin becomes finer and the Pluot gets its gold-reddish colour and its exquisite flavour.

This week we have started supplying cherries from Turkey."Fresh, crisp and sweet", were our client's first comments.

This season begins with very good quality. The first variety is the Early Napoleon, the early mature version of the Napoleon which we'll offer soon. The Salihil will also be harvested shortly. It's a little bit darker than the Napoleon and maybe even somewhat sweeter. Under good conditions the season will last untill August.

In the north of Spain our providers have planted canadian cherry varieties characterized by their firm fruits. The consistency of the fruits extends their storage life and guarantees their fresh arrival at our clients. In the next couple of years we will be able to offer rising volumes. The spanish cherry season finishes in mid-July.
