For generations they have been bred in unique climatic and landscape conditions.

Rich in iron and copper, with a good level of potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, very little nitrogen and totally devoid of calcium. Temperatures and precipitation are influenced by the effects of the active volcano and the altitude.
