For four generations, the Di Geronimo family has been producing Sicilian citrus fruits: oranges, lemons, clementines, mandarins and pink grapefruits that are strictly organic. The varieties are different, from the earliest available at the beginning of November, to the latest that arrive until June.

The Bioinvio farm is completely immersed in the green and enjoys a very fertile terrain. The warm and sunny climate during the day, cold and dry at night helps the temperature range: perfect for allowing the pigmentation of oranges.

How do our organic Sicilian citrus fruits grow?

For us, Organic means respecting the environment and the land without resorting to the use of chemical fertilizers.

Do you know that grass is an organic fertilizer rich in nutrients that is absorbed by the plant? In nature there are insects useful for the growth of oranges that are released into the citrus grove, reproducing the ladybugs hunt the small enemies of citrus trees and Sicilian organic oranges.

Another secret to fighting the white fly of citrus fruits? The photochromic fight! A system with which organic farming and the agricultural ecosystem are not compromised.

Today the company Bioinvio is certified by 2 bodies: Ecogruppo Italia and Biosuisse that every year check if the agricultural activity complies with the strict rules of organic, analyzing the fruits, plants and terrain.

Our Sicilian citrus fruits are harvested with the utmost care and are not washed after harvesting to prevent moisture from compromising their natural fragrance during transport. Moreover, they are not polished with wax to preserve the natural characteristics of the products.

Why Iginio chose Bioinvio Farm:

Francesca produces oranges, mandarins and lemons strictly organic with an intense perfume and the pulp ripens to the right point. The skin of these citrus fruits, which does not undergo chemical treatments, can be easily consumed.

My visit to the Bioinvio farm was a real sensory experience among the unique scents and flavours of the freshly picked fruits. I fully breathed the clean air and walked in the green of the crops, increasing the feeling of happiness. Among the citrus groves Francesca explained to me the methods of organic farming, the use of natural predators (useful insects) for the treatment of plants instead of chemicals and pesticides and agronomic practices that hinder the multiplication of harmful insects. All this has brought me strongly into contact with the world of organic farming.

The Organic citrus fruits are an important source of vitamins C, contribute to combating cellular aging, have a draining and diuretic effect, but above all contain a high amount of fiber
