Growing and harvesting
The strawberry is related to the rose. A striking feature of the plant is its vegetative reproduction: shoots grow from the mother plant, which in turn form new plants. Cultivation starts with a propagation phase. After one year, the strawberry plants are large enough to be planted. In the Netherlands, this is done in containers or pots, in Spain in the open ground.
Strawberries are always picked manually and go straight into their consumer packaging. Packaging is determined by the size of the fruit. Then the fruits are checked for quality. After packing in outer boxes, the pallets arrive at Nature's Pride within 24 hours.
