Format

Perennial herbaceous plant native to northern Africa and central Asia. It has an erect and branched habit with a maximum height of about 60 cm. It has small "oval" leaves, with short petioles and covered with a light down. The flowers are small, pinkish white. Flowering occurs in summer.

The harvest takes place from July to September. The flowering tops are subjected to drying in the shade, in warm, dry and well-ventilated rooms or in a drying room in such a way as to keep the aroma unaltered and thus prolong its conservation.

Cultivation takes place according to the principles of a sustainable and environmentally friendly form of agriculture through the use of organic fertilizers and the absence of synthetic chemicals. All stages are carried out by hand, from transplanting, to the elimination of weeds, up to harvesting, drying and packaging, thus imparting a strongly territorial connotation to the product itself.

The company is based in the heart of eastern Sicily and precisely in Pedara, a small village located on the slopes of Etna, at a height of about 610 m asl. The surrounding territorial context is rich in history and rural traditions handed down from father to son generation after generation. Green hills, farms, noble villas and terraces surround a landscape that in the eyes of travelers appears to be out of time and space.

Etna in the background asserts itself to be overbearing and majestic but at the same time affectionate and caring mother. The climate found in the Etna area, characterized by mild and moderately rainy winters and hot and sunny summers, combined with a sandy soil, light and rich in microelements, deriving from lava flows whose origin is lost in the mists of time, make this an enchanting place , particularly suited and suitable for hosting a great variety of typical local crops.

Among them, aromatic herbs certainly stand out, which thanks to the pedoclimatic factors described above, are able to release particularly fragrant and intense smells, flavors, tastes and aromas, unique of their kind compared to other places.
