Growing and harvesting

Mangetout are climbers. Wooden stakes are placed in the soil and
tied with twine to create a trellis to support the plants. This gives the plants a frame to climb up and avoids direct contact with the soil thereby preventing diseases. After about 90 days, the mangetout will have matured into pods that can be picked by hand and placed in plastic crates. At the packing station, the stalks are removed from the mangetout. The mangetout are cooled, graded and finally packed before making the journey - often by ship - to Nature's Pride.
Mayan Pride Project
Guatemala suffers from high unemployment rates, emigration and poverty in rural areas. There is little work for the growers. However, there are still opportunities as Guatemala has a perfect climate to grow high quality vegetables. Natures´ Pride and its supplier Ghortex, who has been trading and growing sugar snaps and mange tout for years, have joined forces to increase the production of local growers.
