"Long hot summers in this part of Italy creates ideal conditions for these peaches to slowly sweeten to perfection. I'm in awe of the care and dedication our farmer Giovanni takes towards growing this fragile and delicious fruit."
How it's grown
Rather than harvest his peaches in bulk third-generation farmer Giovanni Pietropoli instead passes through his orchards multiple times, only picking the ripe-and-ready fruit in small batches – and all by hand.
It means consistently higher quality fruit and quicker processing. The pickers also use this time to discard any fruit that is going bad to ensure the rest of the harvest stays happy and healthy.
This sweet summertime staple offers a treasure trove of vitamins and minerals, including beta carotene and Vitamin C. Beta carotene helps support your body’s natural defence against illness and infection, helps maintain eye health and improves skin condition.
It’s also a good source of antioxidants and fibre.
