Growing and harvesting

Maracuja is an evergreen, perennial climbing plant with changing leaves. The plants grow to a height of a few metres. First harvesting takes place six to seven months after planting. The plant has a life cycle of approximately 2.5 years and produces maracujas year round. The time to harvest is indicated by three characteristics: the fruit starts to go from green to yellow, the skin starts to become smoother and the stem acquires a yellow ring. Maracujas are harvested with scissors. After harvesting the fruits are transported to the warehouse, where they are partly repackaged into end-user packaging.
