Biosiculà - Seasonal fruit calendar - now available online

We at Biosiculà are very attentive to the freshness of our products. To have guarantees of freshness with intact nutritional properties, each product must be in season. Today it is very difficult to recognize seasonal fruit, since the same qualities can now be found at the supermarket and on the stalls all year round. We could eat specialties such as apples, pears or bananas from January to December, but each fruit has its own seasonality and it is right to go along with it to eat well and healthy. If we then consider that early and late fruit is more expensive, of lower quality and with very low nutritional principles than seasonal fruit, we have really said it all.

This is one of the indispensable requirements for which on Biosiculà you will not find products available all year round but only those that mother nature has decided to give us according to her own rules.
