Identikit

At the time of harvest, no synthetic chemical residues are detectable by analytical instruments in the Sant’Orsola’s Zero Residue* Blueberry. We only choose treatments with the lowest environmental impact and we use them on plants only when strictly necessary. These treatments naturally degrade without leaving any detectable trace on the fruit.
A completely “clean” blueberry, whose appearance is eye-catching: a small round giant with a solid blue color and a heart of light green pulp, covered by his cape-like bloom (a whitish natural wax that is deposited on the skin providing a protective function).
Good source of fiber and vitamin C**, it will conquer you with its crunchiness and vibrant taste!

Certification

The Zero Residue* Blueberry is a certified product whose cultivation is regulated by the Sant’Orsola Procedural Guidelines.
We choose the lowest environmental impact synthetic chemical treatments to promote the well-being of our plants and we use them if only strictly necessary. For this reason, at the time of harvest, our blueberries do not have any synthetic chemicals residues detectable by analytical instruments (<0,01 mg/kg). Moreover, these treatments are always carried out well before the ripening phase of the fruits. It is an important result, which we aim to extend over time to the other small fruits of Sant’Orsola’s offer, already having a residue of treatments 70% lower than the limits imposed by law.

Origins

The adventure that led us to the Zero Residue* Blueberry is the result of the passion and values that have guided Sant’Orsola for over 40 years.
We have always worked with our producers to bring innovation to the countryside and to create the best conditions for the growth of our fruits. How? Limiting as much as possible the use of phytosanitary treatments, improving the techniques of Integrated Pest Management (such as useful insects) and fostering the activities of Research and Development Department. The passion and the desire to work with enthusiasm for an increasingly sustainable production has rewarded us, allowing us to reach new frontiers.
An important goal but also a challenging starting point!

Availability

The Zero Residue* Blueberry is a seasonal fruit and is currently harvested in March, April and May. Its distribution and sales, for now, take place only in this period.
This limited availability is due to the fact that the fields where we cultivate it are located in areas where the production and the natural cycle of blueberries’ fructification take place between March and May. Particular climate related conditions and the ideal habitat found in these territories, both strongly linked to seasonality, have allowed us to grow an excellent sun-kissed quality product: the Zero Residues* Blueberry.

How we grow it

The Zero Residue* Blueberry is currently grown using the soilless technique, a cultivation method which reduces the risk of plant disease, limits the treatments necessary to protect them and ensures up to 30% lower water consumption compared to soil crops.
We also encourage the activity of useful insects in the countryside, helpful to carry out two different fundamental activities: defense and pollination. The balance of the ecosystem is always guaranteed by our “Sant’Orsola Procedural Guidelines for Integrated Pest Management”.

Where it grows

The Sant’Orsola’s Zero Residue* Blueberry is 100% Italian: born, grown and harvested in the fields of our producers in Sicily and Calabria. Currently, these are the areas where we found the optimal environmental and climatic conditions to comply with the Zero Residue* certification.
Now we are working to extend as much as possible, in the next few years the production areas of our Zero Residue* offer.
