Our main objective is to produce and sell natural products of high quality and excellence. There are two strawberry ranges in production, both of which offer a guarantee of quality in taste, combined with the taste of the palate, which adds the visual taste through the superior shape and size for incorporation in professional preparation, restoration, or in high quality confectionery.
The strawberry is a member of the Rosaceae (Rose) family and goes by the scientific name of Fragaria x ananassa. The letter “x” in its name indicates that strawberry is of hybrid origin and, in the case of strawberry, of two different species. The origin of that hybridization is very interesting and involves a Pan American union that occurred in Europe. Our farmer uses the camarosa strawberry, an early short day variety that produces large to very large, firm, deep red fruit.
Called “the queen of fruits,” the health benefits of strawberries include improved eye care, proper brain function, relief from high blood pressure, arthritis, gout, and various cardiovascular diseases. The impressive polyphenolic antioxidant content of strawberries make them good for improving the immune system, preventing against various types of cancers, and for reducing the signs of premature aging.
