San Cono Prickly Pear PDO
Fico d'India di San Cono 3 - Fine Art Produzioni

What makes the San Cono Prickly Pear unique are its large size, peel, intense color, delicate fragrance and very sweet taste. The sweetness and size of the fruit compared with other areas of production in Sicily are important traits related to the specific features of the geographical area. The production area of San Cono Prickly Pear, which is reserved for the Protected Designation of Origin, comprises the territory of San Cono, San Michele di Ganzaria, Piazza Armerina and Mazarin. These areas have certain characteristics, such as altitude and orography that are essential elements in determining the particular conditions of intensity and quality of light radiation, of alternating cycles of wetting-drying epicarp of the fruits and daily temperature range, especially in the period of the fruits’ maturity. The fruit harvest first takes place in August and can last up to December.
