Production and selling of fruit trees both bare-root and container-grown.
The tree nursery is located in a decisive place in the Valencian area of La Ribera del Júcar, nerve centre where the phenomenon of the variety Rojo Brillante was born and has been developed. Persimmon has established itself as the most important species within our company. The reproduction of persimmon fruit trees dates back more than 40 years ago, and we are still today a reference nursery of young persimmon trees.
One of the key points to our marketplace positioning is the good relationship we have established with universities, research institutes, cooperatives and experimental fields.
The experience of our technical and commercial staff and their work and active participation in trials, varietal development collections, improved cultivation techniques and pest and disease controls have given them the best preparation.
Modern facilities have helped us to expand our production capacity. In addition, our trade expansion to other countries -both within and outside the European Union- has allowed that currently the 75% of persimmon trees sales are intended for export. We have customers in countries such as France, Portugal, Italy, Morocco, Turkey and Uruguay.
Since 2000, 1.4 million persimmon trees have been sold. During the last 5 years the number of traded trees is stabilized with an average of 130,000 trees per year, this represents the 30% of our turnover.
All tasks of the season are focused on the future planting of each tree on a farmland. A well-studied production system allows to obtain the highest quality plant.
Within the characteristic of a single varietal species, we always pursue the goal of advancing in the study of new and different products by developing new farming techniques.
We work with three patterns, Diospyros lotus, Diospyros virginiana and Diospyros kaki. Depending on the cultivation area and soil and climate conditions, it is performed a study for choosing the best pattern. D. lotus pattern is the most used reproduction pattern. Although we should not forget the D. virginiana pattern, which is preferred for special soil conditions and also for grafting non-astringent varieties. D. virginiana pattern is considered an eco-sustainable pattern; it is characterized by an efficient irrigation water consumption and lees need for nutrients, what leads to cost savings.
Regarding persimmon varieties, obviously there is a star one: Rojo Brillante variety. It is responsible for the great success of persimmon cultivation in Spain. Other varieties such as Triumph, Jiro, Fuyu, Fuyu Hana, and Tone Wase among others are also reproduced according to our customers demand.
After years of research, we are preparing the introduction of new varieties to our catalogue. We have been focused on searching different varietal options to Rojo Brillante and we have found an interesting way to achieve earliness and size, within the persimmon line mutation.
Quality means homogeneity in size and height, healthy and well-formed roots, perfect health of the soil checked by analysis and technical inspections, without forgetting the correct operation of the tree during and after the transplantation.
Our work does not finish at the nursery. We provide technical support to farmers which is essential to guide them to their cultivation success.
