Growing and harvesting

The mini pineapple is a tropical plant that belongs to the
Bromeliaceae family. It is a perennial plant with grey-green
elongated leaves. To grow the mini pineapple, fields need to be prepared first. Then the shoots, the so-called 'Suckers', from the mini pineapple are planted in a row on the field, which is covered with plastic sheets. At the heart of the plant flowers develop and these grow into one fruit. The mini
pineapple is made up of very small fruits that grow together and they become the mini pineapple. The development of the plant is stimulated by water. Depending on the climate, the mini pineapple can be harvested
after about 15 to 18 months. Harvesting is done manually and
they are placed in crates or big baskets. As they are checked for size and quality immediately while harvesting, the sorting in the packhouse takes less time. In the packhouse the product is washed and prepared for transportation. The shoots of the harvested plants are taken from the field and used again for the next cultivation.
