Dordogne’s high-quality Mara des Bois strawberry is cultivated in the region’s prime areas, guaranteeing fruit that is harvested at optimal ripeness, with the perfect sweetness, balance and fragrance. Dordogne boasts all the elements necessary for the cultivation of this delicious variety: sun exposure, limited temperature variation thanks to the region’s opening onto the ocean, and light, permeable and humus-rich soil. What distinguishes our partner producers is their development of cultivation practices that make the most of the draining and humus-rich soil, which was historically covered by extensive chestnut forests. Dordogne is actually characterised by the almost constant presence of forest, which is closely linked to the production plots. These cultivation practices support the development of the taste and texture of the Mara des Bois strawberry.
