El Pimiento de Fresno
Here, the pepper from Fresno is the King
Our activity began more than 60 years ago, linked to the Peppers from Fresno, today with its own PGI denomination "Pimiento de Fresno - Benavente".
It is a typical red pepper from our village, which we cultivate thanks to the special characteristics of the land and its natural irrigation. The natural products of La Huerta de Fresno are produced in the fertile lands of Fresno, with all the affection of the artisanal production, but using the most modern technology to bring to your home preserved products of excellent quality.
We have our products fresh in season, but we dull them so that they last the whole year. We are a benchmark in the province in terms of quality and distribution, but over time, and seeing the demand for Gourmet products in the market, we started launching a new range of products.
That is how we elaborate our high quality natural preserves
From the moment of planting to the last process, in La Huerta de Fresno we follow the maximum quality controls, together with the traditional and artisan work that our natural products require.
After the preparation of the land and the selection of the best seeds from the previous year, we plant the seed manually, covering the seed with a layer of sand and another layer of pomace in order to favor the growth of the plant. While the plants are growing, the weeds next to the peppers have to pulled by hand, since the use of any herbicide would destroy the seedbed. The control of humidity and temperature is very important, so irrigation (spraying) is always done at the same time, and the plants are protected against frost. When the plants acquire a size of between 15 and 20 cm., we proceed to transplantation.
The lands, worked during the previous months and treated with organic fertilizers, are ready to receive the pepper pots. Maintaining adequate moisture and treating plants carefully is essential.
In the oven
Roasting the peppers requires a special skill and reaching the exact point is only possible thanks to the dedication of years. Then, they are peeled manually, removing the skin and leaving them clean in order to put them in jars, taking special care not to leave bubbles. Likewise, we add the only preservative product, natural lemon juice. Finally, the peppers jars are introduced in the autoclave to achieve sterilization and vacuum packaging.
To your table
After the labeling phase, the product is transported to the different large supermarkets, specialty shops, restaurants and gourmet stores.
Your gourmet product is ready for you with the only goal of your enjoyment
