In 2007 President of Catania Worldwide Paul Catania created Catania Mexico. Originally it began as a source for limes. Prior to growing their own limes, they were purchased at auction in Veracruz. In 2013 Paul Catania discovered a micro climate in Morelos Mexico. This allows Catania Mexico to provide Canada and U.S. markets with Black Mission figs even during the winter months. Previous to this discovery, figs during the winter were only available far from the southern hemisphere. Catania Mexico now grows its own figs and limes, and has an experienced crew for harvesting. Each piece of fruit is hand picked by our harvesters at its perfect level of ripeness, to ensure the perfect eating experience.
