The Algarve orange is distinguished by its thin skin, shiny and bright colour, high juice content and sweetness – fruit of many hours in the Algarve sunshine.
This PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) Product grows almost all over the Algarve, with orchards in an integrated protection system, an agricultural system based on good practices, such as the rational management of natural resources favouring the use of environmentally friendly production for pest control. Among other benefits, it stands out for its high vitamin C content, which contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and folic acid. As is, crystallised, in juices, jams, cakes or salads and sauces, the orange lends itself to everything! A tip: the heavier oranges tend to be juicier.
