From the second year onwards...
If you have enjoyed your first orange season, you can keep your tree during the upcoming seasons. You do, however, not enter in any commitment: You can give back your tree at any time. Of course, we will continue taking care of it and you can take it back whenever you like.

This is the amount of oranges that we will send to you in the frequencies and quantities you prefer. An orange tree produces around 80kg of oranges per year. However, if you think that this is a lot, we give you the opportunity to only receive half of the harvest and to share the tree with Naranjas del Carmen. In doing so, one half of the fruits is for you and the other half for us. You can expand this amount at any time and receive the entire harvest of your tree.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FAQ

1

How long does my orange tree live?

An orange tree has an average life expectancy of around 25 years. If, for some reason, your tree becomes sick or dies before the 25 years are over, we will replace it by one of our own trees, having the same age and orange variety.
2

Can I also order clementines?

Yes, as long as we harvest enough fruits. The mandarine season (variety: clementines) begins in middle of November and usually lasts until the end of December. Hence, you can consume your harvest from the middle of November onwards with clementines and from January onwards with oranges.
3

Can I visit my tree?

Yes of course! In order to visit your tree all you have to do is making an appointment with us one week before using this contact form.
4

How many oranges does an orange tree produce?

Our orange trees produce around 80kg per season. Although we could harvest even more, quality comes always first at Naranjas del Carmen. During the first years, until your tree is able to produce this amount of fruits, we will reserve oranges of one of our grown trees for you so you can enjoy your oranges right from the beginning.
5

Can I give a tree as a gift?

Yes, of course! A tree is a very special and healthy gift, which lasts for 25 years. You need to complete the purchase with your account. Afterwards, as soon as the tree appears in your garden, you can indicate the e-mail address of the person who is supposed to receive the gift, a personal message and the date when he or she should be informed by us.
6

What happens if I will not consume all of my harvest during one season?

You will not lose the kilos you do not consume. The will automatically be added to your kilos of the next season. However, every season we can guarantee only 80kg per tree. In case you have more kilos of the previous seasons left, we cannot assure that you will be able to consume all of them along the ongoing harvest period. We depend on the amount of oranges hanging on our trees.
7

When will you plant my tree and place its name plaque?

The moment you plant your tree, we give you access to your garden, where you can order your oranges during the season. We recommend to choose a name for it directly after you have received the email confirmation (it will automatically carry your name). Its first year, your tree will live in a nursery. During this time we will prepare our fields. As soon as it is strong enough we plant it and attach its name plaque.
8

When do I need to pay the maintenance cost?

The maintenance cost of your tree will be debited automatically before the new season begins (in September or October).

We will inform you by e-mail as soon as the money will be debited and the new season starts so that you will have the possibility to stop the maintenance of your tree.

Crowdfarming® is a much needed agricultural revolution with the goal of reducing the amount of fruit that is currently being wasted. It will allow for the proper cultivation and harvest of the fruit that gets to consumers.

It also allows for total traceability and transparency of the origin of fruit you consume. Knowing who is cultivating, harvesting, and packaging your fruit is the best quality assurance we can offer.
