CITRUS

PRIMOFIORI

Very vigorous and very large tree. The origin comes from the Vega del Segura (Murcia). Medium size,the shape can be spherical or oval. Thinner skin and higher juice content than the Verna variety. Great quality for fresh consumption and for industry. Harvest in spring and second season (October to February). This variety is earlier than the Verna, so it must be grown in warm areas and frost free.

VERNA

Vigorous tree with few small spines. Large and oval shape. Exterior yellow color. Few seeds. Thick peel, easy transport and handling. The skin of ripe lemon is pale yellow, less intense than Primofiori variety. Harvest from February to July. One of it main advantages is that it bears fruit in the summer when lemons are scarce in the European markets.
