How are our oranges different from those sold in regular stores?
Oranges sold in stores spend more than 24 hours in the commercialization company after their collection, receiving different procedures for their preservation and artificial beautification, being stored in cold stores to last a certain time. For this they go through different methods of cleaning and calibration, as well as treatments based on waxes, brighteners, etc. all to get a better color. That is why they tend to collect green and the skin takes color during its stay in the ripening chamber. In addition, throughout this process, the fruit suffers the deterioration added by the blows it receives.
These oranges can take more than 30 days to get to consume, which means that for that they are collected at an incomplete point of maturity and without the consequent supply of vitamins and sugars that you should have.
The freshly picked oranges that we serve, have matured in the tree remaining in it until the correct time of collection, the same day they are sent to your home, retaining all its properties by not going through any chemical maturation treatment, coloring , nor conservation.
We collect the oranges the same day of shipment and deliver them at the optimum time, at its perfect point of maturity, maintaining the acid / sugar balance in an unbeatable way and keeping all its vitamins, so you can enjoy them fresh and natural at home in 24 hours without going through any type of artificial process that negatively affects the fruit so that you enjoy its intense and pleasant taste and its qualities.
