Growing and harvesting

Growing & harvesting
Coconuts grow on coconut palms, which in turn grow on sandy soil. It takes three to five years for a germinated seed to grow into a fruit-bearing coconut. Coconuts are harvested with a long stick that has a small knife attached to its end to cut them out of the tree with their shells still attached. Next, the shell is removed and a hairy brown coconut remains. After that most of the coconut hair is removed by hand, although some of the hair will always remain visible. Harvested coconuts vary greatly in size and weight: from 300 grams to more than 1 kilo each. After harvesting the coconuts are taken to the packing station, where they are sorted for size and packed into bales of 40 or 50 units.
Subsequently the products are transported to the Netherlands as sea freight. Some of the coconuts are repacked from the bales into consumer units by Nature's Pride.
