Growing and harvesting
The trees on which Sharonfruit grows are among the oldest crops grown by humans. In nature, the trees can reach a height of up to 20 metres. In the months of October and November, small white flowers appear between the large green leaves. They grow into fruits that slowly start to colour.
Sharonfruit do not ripen on the tree all at once. That is why harvesting is done in 3 rounds, starting with the fruits with the deepest orange colour. Once all the fruits have been removed from the tree, the leaves turn orange-red and fall off.
- Loose in 2.2 kg boxes, sizes varying from 12 to 20 grams

Recipes & preparation tips
Sharonfruit is an easy-to-eat exotic fruit: whole, including the skin (it contains no seeds). It doesn't matter if it is hard or soft,although the flavour becomes sweeter as the fruit ripens. A rinse is all that is required. Sharonfruit is therefore a real snacking exotic. It is also suitable for sorbet. The fruit can also be marinated and is surprisingly delicious in couscous.
