The best of the genuine black label peach of today inherits a century tradition
Due to its
The tradition in the cultivation of peaches over the Aragon region comes from more than a hundred years. There are documents of the production of Calanda Peach from the Middle Age and in 1895, the botanist J. Pardo Sastrón gave a description of the production process of this unique fruit: of the real black label. The increase in production is developed since the fifties.
And at that period, one of the most singular cultivation techniques was introduced: the packaging. This technique protects the fruit from the effect of scourges and phytosanitary products. This arduous task is carried out by hand around the month of June until August.
