Our fruit

A round, juicy stone fruit. A nectarine is like a smooth peach with no fuzz and can be eaten with or without the skin.
It is one of the fleshy fruits with the most vitamin B3 (niacin), which provides numerous benefits: it helps maintain the chemical balance of the nervous system, participates in the synthesis of steroid hormones (including sex and stress-related hormones), and keeps the skin healthy and looking good.
The benefits of vitamin B3 also include converting food into energy, eliminating toxins and maintaining cholesterol levels within normal limits.
A pome fruit that can be consumed fresh and cooked. It contains a high quantity of carbohydrates and boasts year-round availability. There are many varieties of pear, as determined by size, colour, texture (more or less grainy) and sweetness, but all are low in calories and acidity.
Pears are rich in mineral salts and vitamins C and A. Vitamin A is necessary for good eyesight, bone growth and tissue maintenance. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant. Scurvy is a symptom of the lack of vitamin C.
Vitamin C also prevents fluid retention and inflammation of the intestinal mucosa.
Flat Peaches
The flat peach is a peach hybrid with a very particular squat shape. It is fleshy, sweet and juicy, and its skin is thinner than peach skin. There are varieties with white flesh, yellow flesh with veins, as well as green and red flesh.
Flat peaches are rich in antioxidants, which help strengthen immune response. The phenolic compounds they contain help regulate levels of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and their magnesium supply helps regulate the nervous system (by lowering anxiety and stress levels).
The retinol, vitamin A, vitamin C and antioxidants found in pears help keep the skin healthy, while their supply of calcium and phosphorus (two very important minerals for good health) strengthen the bones and teeth.
Peaches are a type of sweet, round, coloured, juicy, refreshing stone fruit that are very common in summer. They are eaten fresh and also used in industry, especially for canning.
They provide potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron, which makes them a good diuretic (potassium) and antianemic (iron). Peach fibre (2%) is mostly soluble and helps maintain low cholesterol levels, as well as having a laxative effect. Their supply of B vitamins also makes peaches good at calming the nervous system.
Their high water and fibre content and low calorie count make them a true ally of people watching their weight. Because of their carotene and lutein content, peaches favour good eye health, while their high antioxidant content helps them protect against degenerative diseases such as cancer.
Apples are the perfect fruit to eat at any time of the day and make a positive contribution to a balanced diet. Apple skin can be green, yellow or red, and the flesh can range in taste from tart to sweet.
Apples are one of the most consumed fruits in the world. Because of the many different varieties, apples are available to consumers all year round.
Apples help fight the risk of cardiovascular disease by reducing blood cholesterol and sugar levels.
They are the go-to food item for anyone on a diet. They help burn fat thanks to their high pectin content, which also reduces cholesterol levels. And although apples have a low calorie content, they provide a real feeling of fullness.
Apples have anti-inflammatory properties for the digestive system, are astringent and provide a gentle laxative effect. They contain anthocyanins, which are excellent memory enhancers, as well as quercetin, an antioxidant that helps improve blood circulation and cerebral function.
Apples also help maintain oral pH balance, strengthen the gums and reduce the formation of bacterial plaque.
Flat Nectarines
The look of the flat nectarine is what gives it its name. It is very similar to a flat peach in terms of size and shape and its main advantage is its thin, smooth skin. It is very sweet and has a deep aroma like that of a nectarine.
Flat nectarines boast a high vitamin C content and, like other members of the peach family, contain vitamin A, beta-carotene, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus. This fruit is a powerful antioxidant, laxative and digestive aid. Because flat nectarines are also an excellent purifying agent, they are very beneficial for the skin. They also contain vitamin A, which is essential for good eyesight, so it helps keep the skin, hair and bones in the best condition. Its vitamin C content favours good immune system function.
Quinces have yellow skin and a very pleasant aroma.
Because of its hard, tart flesh, the quince is not usually eaten fresh. Instead, it is cooked and prepared as a preserve known as dulce de membrillo.
Quinces are rich in pectins, which means they regulate high cholesterol levels in the blood.
Because of its tannin content, the quince has a powerful astringent effect and can be an effective diarrhoea remedy. Quinces contain malic acid, which has detoxifying effects and helps eliminate uric acid.
The quince’s expectorant effect provides considerable relief from dry cough. The quince also reduces high blood pressure and helps fight fluid retention.
Its fibre content improves intestinal transit and increases the feeling of fullness.
The quince’s potassium supply makes it ideal for preventing cramps and regulating the nervous system.
Apricots are similar to peaches, but much smaller. They are pale yellow or orange with a red tinge. The flesh is not very juicy. When ripe, apricots have a fibrous, floury texture.
They contain high quantities of vitamin A, an antioxidant and essential nutrient for good health, eyesight, hair, skin, bones and immune system.
Apricots are also rich in iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B3 (niacin). Fresh apricots contain tannins, molecules with astringent, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that favour digestion, among other actions.
