Short description

From the south of China, through the Silk Road, the orange tree has spread throughout the East; then thanks to the Arabs in Europe and from Europe it reached the Americas.
What we plant in Guatemala is not the orange tree we all know: it is very sour and mostly used in the preparation of local dishes.

Am I already your favorite tree?

We plant orange trees in Guatemala, in the Petén region. Local farming communities cultivate orange trees in land at risk of desertification. Setting up agroforestry planting projects ‒ and not monocultures ‒ the progressive regeneration of soil is ensured together with animal and plant biodiversity.
As a matter of fact, a stable agroforestry system requires fewer inputs, regenerates soil and biodiversity, and constantly produces diversified yields.
