Adopt an apricot tree from the farm "Monte de Carlos" in Catadau (Spagna) and receive your harvest in the form of Apricots "Albasol" at home. The Farmer Carlos 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.
The apricot trees we are putting up for adoption were planted by us in 2014. Their protected variety is called Albasol. Their fruits are orange with a reddish touch on the parts facing the sun. We are cultivating them without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Instead we are using traps to control the population of pests. In 2019, the process of obtaining the seal for Organic Farming has been initiated. Each apricot tree bears an average of 40kg per season. You can decide how many kilos you would like to reserve from your tree and pay the maintenance costs based on the chosen quantity. This helps the Farmer to plan and sell the remaining harvest amount from your tree to others.
During the season you will be receiving the quantity of harvest you reserved in the adoption process. __5-kg boxes of apricots__ * Cultivated without pesticides (in conversion to organic cultivation) * Harvested from the tree on demand and shipped directly to your doorstep * Without pre-selection according to colour or size * Orange colour with red cheeks on the parts facing the sun * Harvest season: between the end of May until the beginning of June * Average storage time: 2 weeks (cooled)
Quando lo ricevi?
The flowers of the apricot trees open in Spring and bear the fruit. Within a few weeks the flowers wither, fall to the ground and the apricots grow until they have reached the ideal point of ripeness. This happens within only three months. During the second half of May we are collecting the ripe fruits and send them to you in a box containing 5kg of fresh apricots. The Farmer will collect your harvest on demand and just before shipment so you will receive it fresh, not treated with wax or other preservatives.
