Adopt a grapefruit tree of our farm "Bio Agrumi Monasteri" in Floridia SR (Italy) and receive your harvest in the form of Organic grapefruits at home. The Farmer Angelo will take care for your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: once you receive your harvest and you enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.
Adopt a grapefruit tree that we cultivate under the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union since 2010. During the process of adoption you can choose a name that we will engrave on a plaque and hang on your tree. We have been growing citrus fruits in these areas for over 40 years and we are still a family-run farm with me, Valeria, my wife, Renato and Sara, my two children who live and work in the farm with me. We have been growing grapefruits in these areas since 2010, making the grapefruit our youngest citrus addition to the farm. The local climate and vicinity to the sea, makes it the perfect environment for this citrus variety to grow well and reach a very high quality. The total production of our grapefruits amounts to about 20% of the total production. The productive life of a grapefruit tree is around 30 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your grapefruit tree dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from other trees. Each grapefruit tree bears an average of 66kg per season.
During harvest season you can progressively receive the quantity of harvest that you reserve on the moment of adoption. You will be able to receive a minimum of 2 boxes, which can be increased up to 7 boxes according to your needs. Shipping format: __6 kg box of grapefruits Star Ruby variety__ * Star Ruby (beginning of November until mid-April): rounded shape with a very juicy pulp of a rich pink colour, without seeds, has a very pleasant bitter/sweet taste * Organic farming certified by the European Organic Farming seal since 2000 * Harvest on request, shipped without wax or preservative treatments in a cardboard box without plastics * We do not store the fruit in cold chambers, they go directly from the tree to your doorstep * The box includes some extra fruits, in case some of them arrived damaged * One kilo contains between 2 and 4 fruits (the box contains 18 fruits approximately, depending on the size) * If you keep them in a fresh and airy place, they can last 2-3 weeks in good condition (if you want them to last longer, you can keep them in the fridge)
