Adopt a mango tree from the farm "Finca Refijo" in Viñuela (Spain) and receive your mangos, avocados and organic lemons at home. Paco will take care of your adoption and take its picture. You will also 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 have received your mangos, avocados and organic lemons and enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.
You adopt a mango tree from our farm in Viñuela (Spain) that we cultivate following the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union. We are already in the process of converting and expect to be officially certified by 2023. When placing the adoption you can choose a name which we will use to identify your mango tree. The Osteen variety is native to Florida, although it's grown almost exclusively on the subtropical coast of Málaga and Granada. The Keitt variety is originally from India and currently the second most grown in Spain. It's also a late variety. Osteen and Keitt trees are very similar and don't exceed three metres in height. Along with the mangos, we send you avocados and lemons grown on our farm Finca Marroquino. I think this is an amazing combination of fruits. The avocados you'll receive are of the smooth skin varieties (Bacon or Fuerte). They're native to the California-Mexico area and popular as they're harvested earlier in the season. The lemons are of the Fino variety, and we grow them on a small plot. The lemons are also organic, while the mangos and the avocados are grown on a family-run farm that has been transitioning to organic farming since 2020. Our farm has modern drip irrigation systems to save water. The most special thing about our fruit is its flavor as well as the beauty of the way it is cultivated, both during flowering and when the fruit hangs from the trees. During the harvest we make homemade mango jam that we preserve to continue enjoying its flavour when the season ends. Currently we do not have any award, but we do have the satisfaction when giving it as a gift to family and friends, often getting a call of thanks and congratulations for the excellent quality of the fruit, that is without a doubt our greatest gift. Your adoption is 9 years old and its productive life is around 50 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 adoption dies, we will replace it with no additional cost assuring the delivery of your harvest from others. Your mango tree produces an average of 40kg of fruits each season. You do not have to commit to ordering the entire harvest though. Each season you can decide how much you want to reserve, and you pay the maintenance cost according to that amount. This way you only pay for what you plan to consume, and we can offer any surplus harvest to others.
You can reserve between 0 and 0 boxes for the season, and then progressively plan the delivery of your boxes for any of the delivery dates available in the shipment calendar. Shipping format: __Box with 3kg of mangos, 1.5kg of avocados and 1.5kg of organic lemons__ * Mango Osteen (September - October): ovoid-elongated shape, medium-large size, skin with a very characteristic purple hue and orange, yellow or greenish tones, has a low amount of fiber, pulp with a sweet and slightly sour flavour * Mango Keitt (October - November): ovoid-oblong shape, large size, green and pink skin, has low fiber content, pulp with a sweet and slightly sour taste * Avocado Bacon (October - November): round, medium-large with smooth skin of dark green colour and darkens a little more as it matures, less fat than other varieties, very suitable for making guacamole * Avocado Fuerte (October - February): pear-shaped, medium-large size, smooth and thin skin, green colour when ripe with small whitish spots, less fat, very suitable for making guacamole * Lemon Fino (October - April): oval shape; yellow or green skin with a thin and smooth rind; pale yellow pulp; bitter flavour * Mangos and avocados in transition to Organic Farming since 2020; organic lemons since 2015 * 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 arrive damaged * Our trees are not a screw factory: each fruit is unique in appearance and size * One kilo of mangos contains between 1 and 3 fruits (the box contains between 5 -7 fruits depending on the size) * One kilo of avocados contains betwen 3 and 6 fruits (the box contains between 6-8 fruits depending on the size) * One kilo of lemons contains between 6 and 10 fruits (the box contains between 10-12 fruits depending on the size) * Store the mangos and avocados at room temperature until they ripen, then place in the fridge so they last longer * Mangos and avocados are climateric fruits, harvested when they reache physiological maturity; after being picked from the tree they then continue to ripen until they have reached their optimum point for consumption * Important note: the fruits usually arrive hard; to ripen them, keep them at room temperature until they are ready to eat; if you receive some fruit that is already ripe, you can either eat it straight away or keep it in the fridge * If you keep the lemons in a fresh and airy place, they can last 2 weeks in good condition (if you want them to last longer, you can keep them in the fridge) The first thing you should do when receiving the box is to inspect the fruits. Maybe some mangos and avocados arrive ready-to-eat, but chances are you'll have to wait a few days until they reach the optimal point of consumption. The waiting time may vary between 3 and 20 days, depending on the variety and the ripening conditions. Their ripening will depend on the respiration of the fruit, placing them at a higher temperature accelerates the ripening. Once they begin to yield to the pressure of your fingers, you can place them in the fridge and consume them in about 10 days. If for some reason the mangos and avocados have ripened too much, you can freeze them to make smoothies, jams or other recipes in the future. Although they may be green when they arrive, the lemons are ready to eat and full of juice.
When will you receive it?
These three fruits all ripen in the months of October and November, so this will be the time of year when we send out your box.
