Biological pineapple production in greenhouses that takes 2.5 years to get to the end product. Very friendly team that shows you how everything goes, this after a small video presentation that explains the main things about pineapple production. A must stop point.

It takes over 2 years to grow an organic pineapple. The tour takes you through greenhouses representing the different stages of pineapple growth. As this plantation only grows organic pineapples there is a lot of manual labour involved. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and...More
