Each Siracusa Lemon PGI is expertly harvested by hand, cut at the stalk using special, small secateurs to ensure it starts its journey in the optimum condition. This typifies the age-old practices still in use in our lemon groves, handed down over generations of farmers through the centuries.
Local growers’ desire to safeguard that heritage is reflected in the lemon’s Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).
The qualities of our fruit are connected to this land, to the quality of its waters, to the sun, to the climate in which they grow, and are inseparable from our history.
The Siracusa Lemon PGI comes only from Siracusa, from the areas of the province set out in the production regulations.
