ABOUT YOUR ALMONDS
Chirlata almonds have been grown in a 100% organic way, following the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union since 2007. They have the Kiwa organic production certificate and the Euroleaf, the official organic seal of the European Union.
You will receive your almonds in natural containers suitable for their conservation. You just have to keep them in a cool and dry place, between 6º and 10º.
The harvest takes place in September, once shelled, its state is fresh. The almond in no case should be in contact with moisture or with any food that contains moisture, such as fruit or vegetables.
The Chirlata Almonds with skin will arrive in natural jute bags and the peeled ones in cotton bags sewn by hand.
Although it is not possible for all our products, we try to reduce the use of plastic in packaging and shipments as much as possible, so your almonds will arrive in recyclable natural packaging and in a self-sealing cardboard package, along with a preservation sheet to get the most out of your almonds and to maintain all their properties.
The almonds last in good condition for more than 12 months in a cool and dry place.
Marcona is the most recognized almond variety in the world for its high quality, its sweet taste and its toasted blond color. The conditions of our organic farming in the Granada presierra area make it even more special.
It is widely used in confectionery and haute cuisine because, in addition to an exceptional quality, it has a smooth texture and a higher oil content, making it juicier and has a more intense flavor.
The Natural Almond that we grow in Chirlata is not certified organic but has been produced following the same traditional and organic agriculture model. Our almond trees are not treated with chemical products, such as pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers, nor are they genetically modified.
In addition, during cultivation, we seek to protect the local biodiversity as much as possible. For irrigation we use clean water from a 20 meters deep well that collects the reserves of the Sierra Nevada, classified as one of the best waters in Europe. And the production processes are carried out with energy from solar panels.
Of course! We would love to show you how we grow our almonds. Send us a message by whatsapp or email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a date and time for your visit.
