The caper bush thrives on the rocky soil and dry conditions of our Island. It grows wild across Cyprus as in most Mediterranean areas, but Cypriot capers are well known and appreciated by connoisseurs worldwide for their crispiness and outstanding flavour.
Every spring we roam the countryside and collect the amazing green capers’ flower buds. We pickle them in traditional, all-natural wine vinegar and a pinch of salt. That’s it, the delicious and nutritious Mellona capers are ready for you to enjoy!
Use in any kind of salad. Pairs wonderfully well with seafood and pasta. Add in your sandwich. Generally, capers add a briny, savoury hit to all kinds of dishes.
About The Producer
On their blossoming farm on the south coast of Cyprus, Mellona crafts its totally natural products. Surrounded by citrus, olive groves and vineyards, the unique climate and soil characteristics of this land means Mellona is able to produce agricultural products of exceptional quality.
They believe that nature is the perfect food producer. Food, as made by nature, may not have the best shape or the most tempting colour or may not be able to keep for a long time. It surely has though the best flavour and it is perfect for its purpose: to give the body the nutrients it needs in the most effective way.
They also know that nature is nature-friendly. Keeping the production process as natural as possible results in a lower impact on the environment. So natural, organic, raw foods are not only good for you, but also for the planet.
Mellona strongly believe in the notable Mediterranean diet. For them, it’s not just a vague idea but a real guide for developing their products and recipes. In every Mellona jar or bottle, you will find food as close to what nature produced as possible. You’ll also find a bit of sun and Mediterranean aura.
