Spain is a great origin for melons, but we must admit that our French Charentais melon varieties are a lot better in terms of flavor than most Spanish melons :)!. Therefore since 1987 we grow ourself our good old Charentais on the Spanish Mediteranean coast in order to please our consumers before the season starts in France.
We have been growing melons in Alicante since 1987, between May and june every year. This enables us to supply our good old Charentais melon before the season starts in France without modifying a basic cornerstone principle of Charentais melon: the best melons taste best when grown open fields.
We also grow Salads, baby leaves and aromatic herb in Alicante:
In order to have the most adapted logistic organisation to ensure great quality and service of such demanding products, we created our own transport company called "Rellana".
without any concession on these principles on any of our farms since 1963!
