Calabria with about 22,5% of the national citrus cultivation is one of the most important citrus producing regions of Italy: 61% of the area is represented by oranges, 25% by clementines and the remaining 14% by lemons, mandarins, grapefruit, bergamot and cedar.
For three types of citrus fruits, clementines, lemons and bergamots, the recognition of Community quality was obtained (IGP for clementines and lemons and PDO for bergamot).
In addition, Calabria compared to other Italian regions, thanks to the water reserves of the mountain basins, has a better water supply essential to ensure the high qualitative and quantitative standards of the product.
