Tips and curiosities of the tomolo

An interesting fact about capers grown on the island of Pantelleria is that they are famous not only for their distinctive and intense flavour, but also for the unique way in which they are harvested. In Pantelleria, capers are harvested strictly by hand, a traditional method that requires great skill and patience. This artisanal process, which avoids the use of machines, ensures that the capers are harvested at the exact moment of optimum ripeness, thus preserving their flavour and qualities. This manual harvesting method is an integral part of the island's agricultural culture and tradition. Capers are harvested at dawn, when the buds are still closed and before the heat of the sun can affect their flavour. This painstaking process, combined with Pantelleria's unique climate and volcanic soil, makes the island's capers some of the most sought-after in the world.
