 Our firm has always paid particular attention to the citrus fruit plants whether destined for industrial or ornamental use. Regarding the fruits for industrial use, all the plants are produced free from viral diseases in pots, grafted on Bitter orange, Troyer, Carizzo, Flying dragon, ect. Besides the many varieties commonly used (Syracusae lemons 2 K R, Lemons 46644, Washington Oranges, Navel, Navelina, Clementines, Mandarins, Grapefruit, Satsuma and various Hibrids), we take particular care of the pigmented fruit and more precisely for the queen of the red oranges “Tarocco” in its different clones, (Gallo, Scire, Nucellare, Tapi) all free from viral disease.

Together with the Moro and the Sanguinello (blood orange), the Tarocco represents the inimitable particularity and the future of citrus fruit growing production in Sicily. With the cultivation of citrus fruits depending on climatic conditions we have always tried to produce plants in small pots so that people from colder places in North Europe can put them in  green houses or warmer places and enjoy them equally.
