Perivolia Papadima is a family-run business that has been producing the purest, juicy and sweet oranges and tangerines in Western Greece for four decades. Since 2015 we have been certified with the international certificate GLOBALG.A.P and from 2019 as the only Citrus producer in Greece with GLOBALG. A . P . RISK ASSESSMENT ON SOCIAL PRACTICE certification (GRASP).
Our agricultural activity in the citrus fruits section, started in 1980, with the installation of our first garden in the Evinochori area of Aitoloakarnania. Today, our enclosures reach 340 acres, with about 15,000 trees and production exceeding 1,000 tonnes, with a forecast of 1,500 tonnes over the next three years.
The Evinochori area is one of the ideal places to grow citrus fruits due to the particular microclimate presented in the area and its geographical location strategy.
The fertile plains, mild climate (perhaps the only no frost at all citrus region in Greece) and water quality maximize the productivity of the citrus fruit and improve the quality of the fruit, resulting in unique citrus crops.
The fruit is medium to large in shape, oval-spherical, with a bright golden yellow color. Peel relatively easily when the fruit is sufficiently mature. The flesh is juicy, with a balanced acid-to-sugar ratio, sufficiently colored, with a sweet taste and rich aroma.
This variety is very similar to the Washington Navel ( Merlin ) except that the fruit bark is smoother and the navel is less protruding. It also matures about 6 weeks later than Merlin and can be marketed on the tree for a long period.
It is a very remarkable variety, it produces a large fruit with an easily detachable bark. The flesh is coherent, crunchy, tender, juicy, with a sweet taste and low acidity.
Our investment in planting 5,500 trees is estimated to bring us about 600 tonnes of product in full growth and over two years.
