“We must do our best to ensure that the land develops and produces. We need to understand its specificities, promote its possibilities and be committed with its fertility. This must be the challenge of all those who work the land, for the land. We need to keep it healthy so that it can live forever. We need to keep on trying to improve it, so that when it grows, each year, it becomes better and more splendorous. If we do it, something inside us will tell us: I listened to it. I helped it become what it has become.”
This is our challenge. This is how Tango Fruit was created.
Tango Fruit characteristics
Seedless: They are seedless fruit, which means a greater commercial value as well as more safety and comfort at home.
Commercial Characteristics: The most appreciated characteristics are present in the fruits: they are easy to peel, juicy and deep orange in color, setting them apart from competitors.
Mid-late season: A mid-late season fruits that mature during the months of January, February and March in the Northern Hemisphere and during June, July and August in the Southern Hemisphere. Consumption periods are thus longer.
Environmental-friendly: They are sterile varieties and thus, cross-pollination pollen transfer between different species by means of the wind, bees and other insects is avoided. The sterile pollen does not contaminate other citrus species in the areas where Tango/Tang Gold and Gold Nugget are planted. Contamination by pollen from other species is also avoided because the ovules are sterile as well. Tango/Tang Gold and Gold Nugget trees and bees can perfectly coexist and the essential role of the latter as pollination agents is not impeded.
Traceability: Producer, marketer/packer and country of origin are all identified.
Varietal Warranty: The necessary mechanisms to legally certify the variety for marketing purposes are present.
We are a leading group in plant innovation with a 45 year old history. Together with other companies, we have already entered the markets in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa among others.
Our team is made up of more than 200 employees from 20 different countries. Together with the University of California and the World’s experts in our field, we work to create new ways of sustainable development in the food industry both for traditional agricultural business and the new markets.
We aim to be the leading company in the rural sector, firmly committed with Agricultural Development.
The origin of the fruit is guaranteed from licensed producers of the protected varieties Tango/ Tang Gold and Gold Nugget.
This system is based on audits in the field, checking on labelling and verification in the points of sale through the molecular markers.
The items that guarantee the origin of the fruit when it is marketed are the varietal certification label and the export licence granted to the company that exports (Southern Hemisphere).
