In order to meet our quality standards, Sant’Orsola raspberries must be whole, clean and must not have any damage or marks on their surface. The calyx should be removed. They range in color from pink to bright red. Their fragrance is unique and wild and their sweet flavor is well-balanced by pleasant notes of acidity.
An ancient plant originating from south- western Asia, some archaeological finds testify that humans consumed raspberries as early as the Paleolithic period. According to mythology, the goddess Aphrodite often collected these tasty red fruits on Mount Ida to give to her lovers, hence the origin of the plant’s botanical name: Rubus Ideus.
Sant’Orsola’s raspberry plants are treated with a highly reduced use of phytosanitary treatment, 70% lower than the limits imposed by law. We only choose treatments with the lowest environmental impact and we use them on plants only when strictly necessary, to protect them. All Sant’Orsola’s crops are regulated by the “Sant’Orsola Procedural Guidelines for Integrated Pest Management”, in compliance with the national integrated production guidelines.
We are fragile, handle us with care! Keep in the fridge between +4° and +8° degrees and wash just before serving.
