Growing and harvesting
It only takes 8 months from sowing for physalis to grow into a mature plant that can be harvested for the first time. This happens every week, year-round. The berries are only picked when they are fully ripe on the vine. Each physalis shrub can be harvested for one and a half to two years.
The papery husk of physalis has a special function: it protects the fruit and makes it last longer. The husks are dried in the packing stations using air circulation. Intensive on-site quality control is part of the process. The employees then package the fruits in bulk boxes or straight into consumer packaging, ready for transport to the Netherlands.
