The Possa Agricultural Company
The Cinque Terre lemons from Heydi Bonanini's Possa farm are an example of heroic agriculture.
Here, on the terraces overlooking the sea of the village of Riomaggiore, a small citrus grove flourishes where various local types of citrus fruits are grown, including oranges, lemons and kunquats. The company, in addition to dedicating itself to the cultivation of citrus fruits, has a real passion, wine. Its vines overlooking the sea are the result of the desire to recover and enhance a heritage linked to biodiversity.

Cinque Terre lemons
Lemons have been present in Liguria since the 15th century and have found in the Cinque Terre an ideal environment in terms of climate and environment, becoming one of the symbols of the territory and coloring the Riviera di Levante an intense yellow, with its terraces and dry stone walls with sea-view. A splendid palette of colours, in which the green of the hills combines with the yellow of the lemons and together contrast with the blue of the sea.

In the kitchen
Cinque Terre lemons are characterized by their elongated shape and thick, very fragrant and aromatic peel, which makes them excellent for the preparation of infusions and liqueurs; the flavor of the pulp is pleasant and thirst-quenching, in a perfect balance between acid and sweet. Juicy citrus, this lemon is used for juices and for creating desserts.
