The fundamental aspects of the Palmara nursery are two: ricerca
•    the creation of new varieties of citrus fruit trees with careful selection of unusual products from all over the world;
•     production and marketing on a large scale of the whole collection.

The constant research of new citrus fruit trees consists in the hybridization of progenitor varieties, with the aim of transmitting the best genetic characteristics to the new descendants, both from an aesthetic and physiological point of view (plant resistance and vigour). Plants go through a series of culture tests, that last from five to seven years; during this phase, several parameters are taken into account, such as the quality and quantity of blossom, size and ripeness of fruit, vigour, resistance to disease, etc. It is a long and complicated work, but fascinating because you never know what new citrus fruit trees will be created by mixing the already existing varieties.
