Organic La Costiera lemons.
"These Primofiore lemons are grown using organic techniques and are certified by Bioagricert. They are cultivated in our own groves or collected from our partners' groves," explains Valentina Sanna.
Organic lemons are very much in demand in Northern Europe and are popular in Italy as well because the peel is considered edible as the fruit is not subjected to chemical treatments.

"Our lemons are currently available is 500 gram nets or 4 kg crates. We sell to both wholesalers and retailers."
Valentina Sanna and Alessia Tranchino attended Fruit Logistica. They explained that "organic lemons haven't got a perfect appearance due to the fact that they do not undergo treatments with synthetic products. But it's not a defect, it's just how lemons look. I believe it's important to make consumers realise this, and it is precisely is why we add a leaflet to all our packets."
