Imported from Greece

Oranges from Greece

The oranges we offer come from the northeastern part of the Peloponnese, the Argolis region and the area around Corinth.

When there is at least one orange on the plate, the whole house gets brighter and happier from this “lump” of sun. Among the citrus fruits, of which there are over a dozen species, oranges and lemons are in the first place.

Oranges are said to come from China. But they won the whole world when their range of crops surrounded the globe. And it happened only about a hundred years ago.

The orange tree, 7-10 m high, is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the world. Against the background of glossy dark green leaves, there is either a thick, white veil of a wonderfully fragrant flower, or balls of dark green to golden fruit. These fruits contain a lot of vitamins C, A, E, P, B vitamins, as well as potassium, soda, lime, iron and copper. Oranges are destructive to microbes, and the juices and other drinks made from them are refreshing and provide relief from feverish diseases.

Watermelons from Greece

The watermelons we offer are grown mainly in the northwestern part of the Peloponnese, in the vicinity of Pirgos and Kiparissia, and in central Greece, near the town of Larissa.

A bit of history. The watermelon comes from Africa. To this day, wild varieties of this plant grow there. As early as 3,500 years ago, watermelons began to be grown in Egypt, and for a long time they were also grown in China and India. In the 11th-12th centuries, crops appeared in Western Europe, off the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Today, watermelons are grown wherever there is a sufficiently warm, mild climate. In Poland, they can only be grown in greenhouses, which is often unprofitable, which is why our market mainly includes imported fruit.

Action and nutritional value. Watermelons can weigh from 1-15 kg (but there are also specimens weighing 25 kg). Watermelons are low in calories (100 g of watermelon provides just 37 kcal). They are perfect for quenching thirst. They act as a diuretic, so they are indicated for patients with kidneys, as well as for people with cardiovascular ailments. They help with diseases of the liver and biliary tract, hypertension and rheumatism. They provide pectin and fiber which support the functioning of the intestines and promote the removal of cholesterol from the body. In addition to a small amount of sucrose, they mainly contain fructose and glucose, so people at risk of diabetes can eat them without fear. They are a source of valuable bioelements: phosphorus, iron, potassium and B vitamins, folic acid, vitamin C , as well as beta-carotene and lycopene , helpful in anti-cancer prevention.

Wherever climatic conditions allow, vines have been cultivated for thousands of years. Currently, about 2/3 of the world’s crops are grown in Europe.

Nutritional values. One kg gives about 700-800 kcal, so be careful with them when using slimming diets.

The richness of vitamins and minerals is impressive: the grapes contain vitamin A, B vitamins , especially a lot of vitamin PP, vitamin C , as well as calcium, phosphorus, iron , potassium and manganese .
