Their shape and their taste and aroma vary according to the two main existing groups, sweet peppers and hot (chilli) peppers. At Escobi we market:
A sweet flavour with a slight touch of bitterness. We continue calibrating them by hand, in the traditional way, to prevent blemishes and loss of quality in the fruit.
Various types of aubergines can be found: globular, elongated, spherical or mottled. Escobi markets long aubergines with smooth, tight skins, a dark colour and a fresh appearance. We offer them in bulk or packaged in “flow-packs” according to our customers’ requirements.
At Escobi we choose vine tomatoes and plum tomatoes. Vine tomatoes are picked in bunches of 5 to 9 fruit, all at the peak of ripeness. They are firm and keep very well after harvesting, as well as having an attractive, practical presentation. Plum tomatoes are distinguished by their characteristic elongated, oblong shape. They are fleshy, sweet and full of flavour, with a very fine skin.
Cucumbers are long, practically straight vegetables with no neck. The skin is smooth, furrowed and dark green in colour. They have crisp flesh with a very compact, fresh-smelling, slight bitter seed cavity. They are vegetables with a high degree of uniformity and firmness and very digestible.
Escobi produces Almería cucumbers.
Melons are the fruit most in demand all over the world during the hottest months of the year.
The short post-harvest life of this type of fruit has led to it being grown in protected structures under plastic in the fields of Almería, together with using techniques such as “whitewashing” the roof so as to minimise the harsh effects of direct sunlight on the fruit.
Escobi produces the following varieties of melons:
At Escobi, because of our commitment to excellence, we meticulously select vegetables and fruit to meet the demand of the markets in which we are present.
