What is the difference between these oranges and those that are sold at the markets?
The oranges that are sold at the markets are oranges that usually have gone through cold stores in order to be mantained during a certain period of time. The oranges you are ordering now, will be delivered at your home in 24 hours at the latest. It is a way of buying that everyday passing is increasing its demand and number of followers, who have realized the good qualities of the oranges we offer. Oranges freshly hasrvested and always at their optimum period of hasrvesting. You can therefore enjoy buying oranges directly from the farmer.
What are the differences between the freshly harvested oranges and those that have been stored in cold stores?
The freshly harvested oranges have been rippened in the tree until the last moment.
While those that have been stored in cold stores are usually harvested beforehand so they can be stored untill they are sold at the markets.
In that case, the oranges are harvested green, and it is only during the time they spend in store when they get the colour that afterwards they will show at the markets.
How long can they endure at home?
Because our oranges have been freshly harvested they can endure from 15 to 20 days at home without a problem.
If the place where they will be stored is fresh an properly ventilated, they can endure a good state for 5 or even 6 weeks! Kindly check them everyday, wash and dry them.
Do I have to keep them in the fridge?
It is not neccesary to keep them in the fridge , they will mantain their features in a perfect state outside it. But as a piece of advice, try not to set them next to warm places (heaters, radiators, sunny places..)
And it is also very important is taking the oranges out from the box and separating them in 2 or 3 different places. That way they will be aired and they will endure better.
How long will it take until the oranges to arrive to my home?
The transport agency comes to pick the orders daily to deliver them the following day.
They come to pick up the orders from monday to thursday, that is why all the orders placed from thursday to sunday will have to wait until monday.
And the oranges will always be picked therefore that same Monday when they would be packed to be delivered.

The placed orders on Thursdays- Sundays are not prepared until Monday because they will be all weekend in the Transport Agency Store, and we are proud on harvesting them and offering them to you in the following 24 hours, much more fresher.
Although we could deliver the order placed on Thursdays only in the case the order were to be placed early in the morning, giving us time to prepare everything.
If it would be the case of public holidays, we would collect the oranges in the following working day. And you will be receiving them the next day.
