At Garcia Aranda we work with three varieties of lemon:



Also called “fino”, this is the most important variety in Spain, representing 80% of production. The tree blooms with intensity only once a year, usually between April and early May; although it also flowers in summer – the so-called “rodrejos”-, which are more scarce and with fruits of a greater thickness. It is characterized by its spherical shape and the pale yellow colour of its pulp; a very juicy pulp, with a lot of juice content and high acidity.


Its origin is usually associated with the introduction of the Italian “Monachello” lemon in the ‘orchard’ of Murcia. It is the second most important variety in Spain, representing 20% of production, and is grown mainly in Alicante and Murcia. Their harvest extends from March to May, though there is another bloom between August and September – the so-called “rodrejos” or “verdelli”, with thinner, smoother skin. It is characterized by being of a larger size, with a thick peel and a tender and juicy pulp, with a good amount of juice content and a slightly high acidity.

It is the most cultivated variety outside of the Mediterranean and its main producers are California (where it has its origin), Australia, South Africa, Argentina and Israel. It is imported in summer, when the Primofiori campaign has ended and there is not enough Verna to supply demand. It is characterized by its elliptical shape and its almost total absence of seeds, with a smooth peel, medium thickness and more juice content than the other two varieties.



At García Aranda we offer a personalized packaging service, by adjusting the product to all the packaging features (formats, sizes and weights) that our customers demand.
