PGI Peach from Leonforte

PGI Peach from Leonforte

PGI peaches from Leonforte are grown with a particular technique: While the fruits are still small and green, they are wrapped in a paper bag manually, one by one, in order to be naturally protected from inclement weather and bugs. Without pesticides! In this way, it is possible to enjoy a delicious and natural fruit, while respecting the environment! The PGI “Pesca di Leonforte” is a late season peach that you can find from September to November.
PGI Peach from Bivona

PGI Peach from Bivona

The “Pescabivona” is a peach variety produced in the Monti Sicani area in Sicily, which ripes from the end of June to early October. The fruit has a sweet and aromatic flavor, with a fresh and crunchy flesh. The soil and the specific climatic characteristics of the production area have facilitated the development of peculiar organoleptic properties : firm and white flesh, sometimes with red grain on it, and a delicious, sugary taste.
