The first Sicilian apricots arrive in European markets as the cantaloupe season is underway


“We are always a little moved in the days leading up to a first harvest of seasonal fruits. We look forward to these times, especially when the quality of the apricots on the trees is incredible, ”said Angelo Di Pasquale, founder of the famous brand Donnalia with his brother Vincenzo.

“We are about to start our early apricot harvest and the season looks promising, given the lack of harvests in almost all Italian and European regions. Fortunately, our farm was saved from unpleasant weather problems and the quality of the fruit is excellent. The season will enter into full swing at the end of the month. On the other hand, the last season ended in an optimal way, in particular for the nectarines, which recorded an increase in sales of + 40%. “
