The "Gigante" variety is found in the territory of Calatabiano: the fruits they have an exceptional size up to almost 100 gr. for fruit, of elongated shape and amber yellow.
It would seem that the Calatabiano medlar is unique in its kind, having acquired specific and particular organoleptic properties in a period of time sufficient to guarantee the stability of the product.
