Capers, the green gold of Salina

The island of Salina is the right environment for the caper to grow and develop.
The volcanic soil with high potassium content and the constant sea breeze have made the caper plant, a perennial shrub of likely tropical origins and existing in different varieties, very widespread and absolutely integrated into the landscape.
In recent years, the caper has become the symbol of Salina, so much so that it is now also used as an ornamental plant.
The most prized variety of the Salina caper, the Nocellara, is particularly compact, meaning it keeps better and is more uniform and fragrant.

What makes the Salina caper different is the centuries-old and traditional skill with which it is cultivated, treated and preserved in salt.
