STANDING OUT AMONG EXCELLENCE

Among the many varieties, Count Guarienti has chosen to grow those with the best flavour, capable of satisfying different needs: long-lasting fruits, for people who are unable to shop every day, small for singles, large for big families, versatile to arouse the imagination of cooks.

The fruits of Count Guarienti: melons.

Melons

Giusto the netted melon. The amber green skin envelops a deep orange and crunchy pulp. Particularly sweet taste and absence of fragrance: ideal for those who love the full flavour of melon, but not its typical smell. Its goodness lasts for up to 10 days.

Honey Moon the smooth, porcelain peel and orange flesh. Sugary flavour, persistent aftertaste, intense fragrance: a melon for refined palates.

Best eaten within 3 days of purchase.

Melons have low calorie content (33Kcal/100g) and are very rich in beta carotene and vitamin C (30mg/100g) almost as much as oranges.

The fruits of Count Guarienti: watermelons.

Watermelons

Crimson Round: dark green skin with black streaks, an intense red flesh, crunchy, thirst quenching sweetness.

Miyako Round: round, medium size between 8 and 10 kg. Bright red flesh and sugary, easy to cut, thanks to a skin that offers little resistance.

Sentinel long: bright red pulp, tender, very sweet. Large in size, it can reach up to 16 kg, a delicacy capable of satisfying the whole family.

Mini watermelons with vermillion flesh, crunchy, excellent and ideal for small appetites or for those who enjoy them alone.

Thirst quenching, low in fat, rich in potassium (ideal for sportspersons and athletes), lycopene, beta-carotene and low in calories (30Kcal/100g).

Knocking on watermelons become superfluous! Count Guarienti uses methods which permit harvesting them only when they are perfectly ripe. For mini watermelons, the marking on the skin, with a letter identifying the watermelon’s age, and for other varieties, a system of coloured ribbons documenting their development right up to the ripening stage.

The fruits of Count Guarienti: pumpkins.

Pumpkins

Delica bright green, striped skin, firm orange flesh, fragrant and very sweet, with a characteristic aftertaste of chestnut: a unique delicacy.
Versatile in the kitchen, suitable for all recipes, from traditional to gourmet dishes.

Sweet Mama dark green skin, bright orange-yellow pulp, very sweet. Available from June to April to satisfy the desire for pumpkin all year round.

The pumpkin contains fibre and very few calories (26Kcal/100g), a valuable ally in the kitchen for tasty and light creations.

Storage: the whole pumpkin should not be placed in the fridge, but stored in a dry, dark place with a temperature between 18 ° and 22 °, so it will last long time. Once cutted, instead, it goes into the fridge and eated within 3 days.

The fruits of Count Guarienti: the delicious pumpkins.
