Juicy Oranges from sunny coasts
As most of SanLucar citrus fruit, both our eating and pressing oranges are also grown on the Valencian and South African coasts. Both regions offer ideal cultivation conditions for oranges. A constant fresh breeze ensures that the fruit dries immediately after rainfall. Then there is no humidity left, which could compromise the skin shelf life and consequently the protection of the fruit flesh.
Eating and Pressing Oranges
Many exquisite eating oranges contain limonin, a natural bitter substance that only reveals its bitter taste by pressing. Thus, our expert growers have selected limonin-free cultivars with high juice content for our pressing fruit. This way, you get more delicious orange juice out of fewer of this Vitamin C bombs.
Besides, their skin is also suitable for consumption, so that only pure taste gets to the glass when they are pressed. Both our Eating and Pressing Oranges belong to the enjoyment concept “Eat or Press“.
