Some History
The first historic references to the cultivation of citrus trees in the Gargano area date back to the year 1003. At that time, the prince of Bari, named Melo, lured the Normans to conquer the spur of the Italic boot by sending them samples of the rich variety of products found there, including the pomi citrini (citrus apples), or the fruits of the melangolo tree (bitter orange).

In the 17th century the citrus fruits from the Gargano orchards were exported by sea not only to Venice for local consumption, but also to Gorizia and Trieste. From there they were forwarded on land routes to Germany, Austria, and the rest of continental Europe.

Thank to the characteristic durability of this product, which could travel for over a month without damage to the oranges, in 1870 Isidoro Tomas started to successfully export oranges and lemons from Gargano to the United States and Canada.

Characteristics of the Product
There are two varieties of Arancia del Gargano IGP, the arancia depressa (literally, 'depressed orange') and the arancia a pera (pear shaped orange.) The arancia depressa is round, its skin is thin and intense yellow in color, while the arancia a pera is elongated in shape, has thicker skin, and the color is golden yellow.

The Arance del Gargano IGP are available fresh from May to September.
