PANTELLERIA CAPERS PGI

The Island of Pantelleria is of volcanic origin and is extremely arid, due to very little rainfall, therefore it is an ideal environment for growing capers.

The plants are carefully chosen and planted in the most suitable soils for cultivation, that is, the terraced soils most exposed to full sun. During winter, the soil is tilled and fertilized and capers are harvested.

Harvesting is carried out by hand from 1st May to 31st October, a scalar model is used and the flower buds that have not reached a sufficient degree of ripeness are not collected.

The farmers return to the same plant every 8-10 days, depending on the weather conditions. For the salting process, the freshly harvested capers are placed in a vat and covered with coarse sea salt and they are mixed every day for 10 days.

The vegetation water is then removed and a second salting process is carried out by mixing and draining the capers every day for another 10 days.

Capers are rich in Quercetin, a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory Flavonoid, with potential anticancer properties.
