Daifressh's commitment is to serve the freshest, tastiest and most beautiful fruits and vegetables. All the experience and effort of our team is ultimately focussed on your enjoyment of the fruit that you deserve.
Our oranges come from the areas south of Valencia, Murcia and Córdoba. In these three areas we acquire a selection of the best varieties. We start in the middle of October with the Valencian Naveline then in late December the Córdoba Salustianas are already at their best being much appreciated for their high juice content. From the beginning of January to April we have the table varieties of Navel, Late-Navel and Late-Naveline at their optimum point of consumption with better levels of juice and brix.
Mandarins and Clementines
From our farmers in Castellón and Alcanar, our Clementines - especially the Clemenules variety – are considered to be the best easy-peelers in terms of quality of taste, sugar and juice content. We offer a varietal range that stretches from October to May, from the first Clemenrubi that despite being early has an excellent quality; Oronules that stands out for its colour; Marisol harvested at its optimum point of maturity.
The group's early clementines: Arrufatinas, Mioros and Pons are those that precede the arrival of the queen of mandarins, the Clemenules! Clemenules are the ones which we offer the most with the potential for very large volumes of around 80,000 tonnes; plus a guaranteed quality that we are able to maintain until the end of January. After finishing with the Clemenules, our specialist group has more than 60% of the production of Hernandinas in the Valencian community, from the first week of February to the first week of March. Also in February we start with Nadorcott until mid-May when we end the campaign with Ortaniques until mid-June. To provide continued service in Clementines, we are employed at production, treating the skin to be able to pick certain items in order to guarantee prolonged production time and therefore maintaining the product longer in ideal quality conditions.
Lemons & Grapefruit
Our producers from Vega Baja del Segura produce the best lemons, from the middle of October when we begin with the Fino lemon until the end of April when we continue with the Verna lemon right up until the end of June or mid-July, depending on the production quantity of the latter variety.
The grapefruits of Murcia and Córdoba are sold by us from December until the end of April, when we can guarantee the best juice and brix parameters with ideal acidity.
Within the stone fruit group we classify: cherries, apricots, nectarines, peaches, flat peaches, flat nectarines and plums. All are characterized by having a central stone, by being very sweet due to a high brix grade and being climacteric, i.e. they continue ripening after harvest, which means it is very important to closely control the cold chain.
The main production areas are in Andalucia, Murcia, Badajoz, Aragon and Lérida. In May we begin with production from our farmers in Murcia then the second week of June we begin with Lérida, where we finish in October. At Daifressh we decide on harvesting according to the internal parameters of the product, bearing in mind the hardness and the brix grade throughout the whole process, so that our products reach our clients in the tastiest conditions.
Our supply of red fruit consists of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. From January to May their production comes from Huelva, the most important producing area of this group of fruits in Spain. In the sunny, sandy marsh area of Huelva and close to the natural park of Doñana, the berries grow in unbeatable soil and climatic conditions. The berries possess a high vitamin content, especially C and E and are also very rich in antioxidants. They are rich in healing properties and are very beneficial to the body.
At Daifressh we select the best red fruit varieties that fulfill all the necessary internal and external quality requisites which satisfy the needs of our consumers. We select varieties that guarantee a balance between acidity and sweetness, a sweet and deep aroma, a good appearance, intense and brilliant red colour and at the same time are resistant with a durability that guarantees the ability to travel to our markets and reach the consumer in the best possible conditions for consumption.
Melons & Watermelons
Within this fruit group we market the following varieties: Melons: Honeydew, Galia, Cantaloupe and Piel de Sapo. Watermelons: with seeds or seedless, mini, striped and black.
Our earliest melons and watermelons begin in April and May, from the cultivation areas of Almeria. In June, July and August our melons and watermelons are grown in sunny Murcia. Nutritionally watermelon is the fruit which contains the most water, around 93%. This makes it a very refreshing fruit with an extremely low calorific value, truly excellent in hot weather! The melon is also a great source of vitamins, with a large amount of sugar which gives it a very sweet taste.
Persimmons & Pomegranates
The Daifressh persimmons come from our farmers in the Valencian community. In particular the variety Brilliant Red which is the one we cultivate. It is a large calibre persimmon, oblong in shape, orange in colour and seedless.
Once collected and the astringency naturally eliminated (method of elimination of tannins that give roughness to the fruit) its flesh is firm and crunchy, sweet and aromatic, delicious in flavour and very easy to eat, even with the skin.Our pomegranates come from the Elche region of Alicante and varieties include Molar and Valencian.
At Daifressh we grow and market varieties of pepper, aubergine, courgette and cucumber. These are very healthy products with high vitamin and mineral content. They are from our farmers in Motril, Murcia and Almería. Regarding peppers, primarily we offer Californian Red, Green, Yellow and Orange Pepper. Also available are White and Hot Pepper. We are able to guarantee the supply of vegetables throughout the year because in winter we grow them in the warmest areas to be able to supply European markets with all the guarantees of food safety and production.
Our range of leaf vegetables covers lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage along with Baby, Lollo Rosso and Green Lollo Cabbage varieties (both straight and curly) all of which come from Murcia.
Throughout the year at Daifressh we have leaf vegetables available, always offering the best variety during each production cycle. We care about their production and harvesting. In addition we package according to the needs and requirements of our customers, with rigorous quality control.
Our tomatoes, from the best Spanish production areas, are grown in Níjar and La Cañada (Almería). From there come our Plum, Round and Cherry Tomatoes.
Due to the nature of the microclimate in the Almería province, their lands and the salinity of the water, they all add up to give the tomato its best characteristics of hardness and flavour. These make it the most appreciated vegetable by our customers. So at Daifressh we select the tomato according to quality criteria and the tastes of our customers. We follow strict criteria of selection at the point of maturity in accordance with the colouration of the tomato. We have more than 40 distinct lines of presentation and tomato varieties on offer.
