The PGI of Cauliflower from Calahorra protects the vegetables cultivated in the City of Calahorra, Aguilar del Río Alhama, Alcanadre, Aldeanueva de Ebro, Alfaro, Arnedo, Autol, Cervera del Río Alhama, Pradejón, Quel y Rincón de Soto.
The conditions of the land give to the cauliflower special characteristics, while the farmers and producers have a good technical knowledge.
The climate is an important variable to the cauliflower development. Given that winters are soft and summers are long and there is a high relative humidity, the cauliflower grows slowly.
These cauliflowers are solid and compact, disease resistant and their colour is between white and cream. They have a diameter of 11cm, with well-shaped green leaves.
The harvest has to be handmade and delivered to warehouse in less than 12 hours. This product is commercialised fresh.
