Authentic territory and guardian of ancient traditions
The Metaponto Plain benefits from an ideal microclimate and the extraordinary fertility of its soil means that the area is perfect for growing various types of crop. An authentic territory and guardian of ancient traditions that only bears good fruit.
The Metaponto area is perfect for growing canary melons (also known as winter melons), which are highly sensitive to the cold and frost.
This fruit, which for everyone is a symbol of summer and physical well-being, loves the sun and high temperatures – which are not lacking on the Ionian coast of Basilicata – accompanied by a low level of humidity and prefers deep, well-irrigated but drained soils without stagnant water.
