Main products


Almonds, which are rich of vitamins and mineral salts beneficial to our organism, are one of the main ingredients of many Apulian recipes. They provide good energy to our body and contain vegetable proteins and fiber which helps the well-being of our intestine. They are good for our bones due to the presence of calcium.

Dried figs

The fig, which is a plant and a fruit widely spread in Puglia, has become an interesting product of the culinary art non only because it is a fruit, but also because it is used in many recipes, both traditional and in new extremely innovative ways.

The production

Discover our production process.

The fruits that we offer to our clients are the symbol of the most typical salentina tradition.

The selection of the fruits is the fundamental part of our work, that it starts in the fields and ends with the packaging.
The figs, after the harvest of the first fruit, which is called “fiorone” and which is also enjoyed fresh, are harvested by skilled workmen and positioned on the so-called “cannizzi”, where the figs are sun-dried according to the salentina tradition. Depending on the degree of ripeness, the fresh figs are half-cut or left entirely to dry.

As soon as the figs arrive at our warehouse we precisely make an additional selection, in which the fruits that do not reflect the desired features are removed and intended for other productions ( jams, syrups, distillates etc.)
The selected figs are washed and dried gently and are then cut with special knifes in order that both sides remain attached to the stalk: this procedure is required to form the famous “figs couple”.

Fruits are so differentiated by filled figs and natural figs. The already cut figs are then overlapping and used for the production of the natural figs. On the contrary, the already unsplit figs are filed with toasted almonds and then are overlapping.

The hardest part of the production is the baking because it is very important to making sure that the figs won’t burn. When the figs are still worm, they are placed in handmade baskets and then enriched with honey syrup and bay leaf.
