The Gargano Duretta orange, locally known as arancia tosta, may be round (duretta tonda) or oval (duretta a viso lungo). It has very smooth, finely pebbled, pale orange rind. The crisp, amber flesh is finely textured with small vesicles and few or no seeds. The average diameter of the fruit is 55–60 mm.
It is a very old variety, of unknown origin, which grows only in the orchards of the Gargano Peninsula. Duretta means “hard” and refers to the particularly firm, crisp flesh, which is practically seedless.
The oranges ripen in December and their production has always been very limited, making them highly sought after.
The harvest period is from early December to the end of April.
This variety is grown in valleys due to its higher cold hardiness.
