Growing and harvesting

Kiwis are vigorous climbing plants that need to be trained along a framework to grow. It takes about three years before the plants are mature enough to produce fruit ready for harvesting. Samples are taken before the grower starts to harvest the fruits. The brix (sugar content) and dry matter value are analysed. If the test results are satisfactory, the kiwis are picked. Kiwis are picked by hand and sent to the packing station after harvesting. Here they are size and quality graded by a machine before being packed into crates. Afterwards, the kiwis are shipped to the Netherlands.
The ripening of
When the fruit arrives at Nature´s Pride 'they get a quality check. Then the ripening supervisors determine the ripening process for every pallet and adjust the humidity and the temperature accordingly. This way the climate of the country of origin is reproduced. All the avocados go through a specific selection process so only the best products receive an EAT ME sticker. You can find more information about the ripening process here.
