We are perfectly situated to grow a wide range of citrus cultivars. Our hot summer days are always tempered with cooling afternoon breezes off the sea. Winters are mild, but with warm days and  cold nights, which induce fully coloured fruits with tender flesh.  The best lemons in the world are grown at between 30 -35 degrees N and S. Our valley, at 33 deg S is perfectly situated for the production of good quality lemons. An abundance of irrigation water allows us to water our trees when they need it.

We are the world’s first producers of organic citrus.

Any fruit that does not meet our strict export standard for external blemishes is sent to our juicing factory where we produce premium single strength frozen juice and essential oils.
