With its brand L'Orto di Eleonora, Campidanese has combined the success of the Corallo melon with Eleonora, the innovative seedless watermelon. “Eleonora is our seedless watermelon with a long shelf life. Its high level of sweetness is produced by the Sardinian soils in which it is grown. Sizes range from 4 kg to 8 kg, depending on the customer or the season. Meanwhile, Corallo is enjoying great success among consumers. Our super-sweet melon which won the 2019 Macfrut Award immediately took off thanks to its reduced size of between 1.8 kg and 2 kg.

La California has continued to develop its melon production project in Peru. “For the third year, we are continuing tests in Peru on 5 hectares of Saporito melons. The results are very good thanks to the climate and the suitable soil that prevent fungus formation. With this production, we plan to cover the calendar window not covered by Brazilian melons, which generally last up to February. So these melons from Peru will be supplied from March to April, at which point they will be joined by Spanish and Italian fruit in May and June," said general manager, Giuseppe Galluccio.
