Country of origin
Grown in Spain.
These organic limquats are grown by Enrique Vallejo and his son Juan on their small-scale organic citrus farm in the north of Spain, just outside Malaga. Their fields are abundant with grapefruit, oranges, clementines, lemons – as well as experimental new varieties. A few of us went over to Spain to meet Enrique and Juan, as well as other Spanish growers old and new – read all about it on our blog.
