“We start off with a small plant in November. The first flowers appear in January and develop into a ripe fruit in eight to ten weeks. We harvest the first fruits in March and the last fruits in November. Each plant produces around 75 sweet peppers. Our growers give the plants water and nutrients, which produces a wonderful flavour.
Harvesting the sweet peppers is manual work. Our employees take their harvest trolleys along the paths to harvest the sweet peppers that have reached the right colour. These are then taken to the hall for further processing and transport, en route to the consumer.”
