Cultivated varieties

At Servicios Agrícolas Fruteq we specialise in the cultivation of native and foreign citrus fruits. We work with the following varieties:


Large, slightly flattened, with a deep orange peel and easy to peel. The ARRUFATINA clementine is an early variety (October-November), the internal maturity of the fruit (reached in mid-October) is on average three weeks earlier than that of the Clemenules.


Large, excellent quality, orange-coloured oranges. Seedless. The shape of the fruit is round. The juice percentage is high, and the sugar/acidity ratio is very well balanced. The juice quickly acquires a bitter taste once obtained, due to the presence of limonin. It is a very productive, late-ripening variety that can be harvested between April and May.


Large size and excellent quality orange, with an orange colour. Seedless. The shape of the fruit is round. The juice percentage is high, and the sugar/acidity ratio is very well balanced. It is harvested from April to May.


Clementina is slightly larger than the rest and has an intense orange colour. It is the earliest variety, so much so it is the first to reach the market. It has a good juice content, and its flesh is juicy and tender. It is harvested from September to October.


This is the queen of the mandarins due to its great acceptance. Its season is from November to the end of January. It has a thin skin that facilitates peeling and is seedless. It has a very pleasant flavour. Its pulp is juicy and has a high number of vitamins. The proportion between acids and sugars is well balanced. It is a variety that can remain ripe on the tree for a long period of time without spoiling. Once harvested, it lasts between 3 and 4 weeks in good conditions, as long as it is kept in a cool place.


Is a medium-large sized fruit. The colour of the NOVA HYBRID MANDARIN is a very attractive reddish orange, it is a productive variety and can be grown in most of our citrus-growing areas.


The fruit, although slightly larger than that of Fina clementine, is somewhat small. The pulp has excellent organoleptic characteristics. It is an early variety and can be harvested a few days before the Fina clementine. Harvesting should not be delayed long after the fruits have reached full external maturity, as they are sensitive to rain and dew damage.


The clementine mandarin HERNANDINA is harvested from mid-January and keeps successfully on the tree under normal weather conditions until the end of February, without deterioration in quality or condition. If there is one thing to note about the HERNANDINA clementine variety, it is its short shelf life.


The most outstanding characteristic of the Iwasaki satsuma mandarin is that it is one of the last varieties to flower but one of the first to be harvested when green in order to maintain intact and optimal the ratio of sugars and acidity that confers to this mandarin its great flavour.


This is one of the latest varieties of the navel group oranges and that can be enjoyed from January to May. It has a low limonin content, so its taste in juice does not become bitter once squeezed. Its skin is thinner and has grooves. Ideal for the table.


It is thick, has an intense orange colour and is seedless. They are of great quality and have a lot of juice. It originates from a mutation of the Washington Navel in Foyos (Valencia). They are harvested from November to May.


Natural mutation of the Washington originated in Vinaroz (Castellón) in 1948. Smaller fruit of high organoleptic quality. Orange colour, elongated round shape and smoother skin than the Washington. Seedless, juice percentage of 50-54% and harvesting from 15th January to 31st March.


Oval-shaped clementine with an intense orange colour. Peeling is difficult and has a juice percentage between 50-55%. It has no seeds although it can be cross-pollinated. Harvesting period is from February to April.


Small, intense orange-reddish colour which makes it very attractive. The skin, which is prone to swelling, is soft, pleasant to the touch and easy to peel. Harvesting is very early. It is harvested from September to November.


The ORTANIQUE hybrid mandarin variety is late and very productive although somewhat sensitive to cold. The fruit of the ORTANIQUE hybrid mandarin is large, has an intense orange colour, is slightly flattened in the stylar region and has a halo, and sometimes a small navel appears which only affects the peel. Great disadvantage for peeling the fruit by hand.


Large, seedless fruit, with an intense orange colour. Its skin has a fine roughness. The richness of the orange juice content is low in acidity and high in sugars. It is harvested from April to May.


It is small to medium-sized, has few seeds and the peel is thin and shiny. It has areas of intense red colour. Inside the flesh is orange with multiple blood-coloured streaks. Its juice is sweet but somewhat sour. Harvesting period is from January to March.


Mutation of the Valencia Late originated in South Africa in 1952. Elongated, orange-coloured. Seedless, although it may occasionally have some seeds. Percentage of juice from 53 to 58%. Harvesting period is from March to June.


They are very juicy and sweet, medium-sized, and rounded oranges. Their peel is very orange and, although thin, sometimes a little rough. It has a high juice content with an attractive colour and flavour, sometimes slightly more acidic than other orange varieties. It is harvested from April to June.


Mutation of the Valencia Late originated in South Africa in 1927. Orange colour, elongated shape. Very few seeds. Juice content 50-55%. Harvesting period is from March to June.


The Washington Navel orange is large. Spherical shape and, in general, with a large navel. Intense orange skin and juicy flesh. Harvesting takes place in mid-season, from December to March.
