Artur’s oranges from the Lameira farm in Portugal, are exceptionally juicy and naturally sweet because they have been allowed to hang on the tree until they are fully ripe. Each orange has roughly 300 days worth of sun in it! Artur’s oranges are completely natural without surface treatment so the rind can also be used in cooking.
Artur and his family have been growing 17 different citrus fruits varieties (oranges, lemons and clementines) for over 60 years in Algarve – the citrus capital of Portugal. The warm climate and mineral rich soil composition provides the optimal conditions for citrus cultivation.
Storage and shelf life
Since our citrus fruits are completely natural without surface treatment, they have a shorter shelf life. When stored in 4°C – 8°C, they can last for up to 4 weeks. However their best taste is expressed at room temperature.
The Fukomoto variety is an early winter orange, rich in flavour and sweetness and incredibly juicy. In the beginning of the season (October) the taste can have a slight acidic, orange twang, until it begins to become more sweeter over time.
Citrus fruits are an important source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Citrus fruits are good as healthy snacks, a colourful addition in salads, yogurt, and delicious as freshly squeezed juices and dressings.

With its 170ha land, Lameira is one of the largest citrus plantations in the sunny Algarve, in the South of Portugal.
The mineral-rich soil and warm climate creates the optimal conditions for citrus cultivation. Every orange has over 300 days worth of sun within them, ensuring they are very sweet and juicy!
The Lameira plantation (Lameira = “muddy” in Portuguese) has been a family-run farm for over 60 years.
Artur and his family are working in the orchard every day to ensure the highest quality of their citrus fruits, including oranges, lemons and clementines.
With more than 17 citrus varieties can Lameira deliver fresh citrus fruits all year round – without keeping them in stock.
The trees act as “nature’s own stock.” Citrus fruits are allowed to fully ripen on the trees and harvested fresh for every order.
