From Italy with Love…and a lot of organic fruit! 🥑 🇮🇹
Orteat starts shipping organic products from its Italian farmers to some European countries.

In the meantime, we don't want you to lose the chance to try out our farmers' products!
Our pomegranates belong to the Wonderful variety and they are originally from the region of Sicily; they have an intense red color and a sweet and sour taste.
The fruits contain a lot of antioxidant properties and can be consumed either fresh or by squeezing them to get a tasty juice: the taste can be bitter in the beginning but pleasant and aromatic in the end.
The pomegranate is a fruit which is highly appreciated for both its organoleptic characteristics and its beneficial properties. Indeed, it is an extraordinary source of vitamin A and C, antioxidants and mineral salts. Moreover, thanks to its content of fibers, it has a depurative and benevolent effect for the bowel, whereas thanks to the presence of tannins and ellagic acids it acts as an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent.
The fruit can be used for both fresh consumption and for its juice, as well as for the preparation of jams and syrups. The edible usually red parts of the pomegranate, the arils, are the juiciest ones.
Our Wonderful Pomegranates are sustainably grown in the open fields of the Sicilian farm ‘Melograno Siciliano di Federico e Daniele’.
During the whole cultivation process, in full respect of nature and of its seasons, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used. The Wonderful variety (a late type of Pomegranate, different from the Akko one), is characterized by a beautiful and intense red color, by a sweet and sour taste and it is very suitable for the preparation of fresh juices, but it can also be eaten in its original form. The harvesting of the fruits takes place between October and December.

Use and Storage
In order to eat the pomegranate, you must cut the upper and lower parts of the fruit. Afterwards, you can cut the fruit in 4 parts and separate its seeds. You can also make excellent and super healthy pomegranate juices by using a normal juicer!
Our pomegranates are not treated either during pre-harvest operations or during post-harvest operations: anti mold and waxes (products that increase the aspect of the fruit as well as its preservation) are therefore not used. If you keep them in a dry and cool environment, they can be perfectly stored for almost a month. In addition to it, you can also store them in the fridge at a temperature of about 6-7 degrees.
