Be a Pineapple from the Azores!

🍍🍍 The Portuguese discovered the pineapple fruit at the time of the colonization of Brazil and brought it to the archipelago of the Azores on the 17h-18h- centuries.

The Pineapple of the Azores is produced in glasshouses called Greenhouses, using traditional cultivation techniques, using “smoke”  so that the plants can flourish all at the same speed, and using “hot bed” based on vegetable matter.  This type of cultivation is very specific and time consuming, where no pesticides or herbicides are introduced, producing an all-natural fruit.

This whole process of production of Pineapple of the Azores takes about two years, counting from the planting until the moment in which the fruit is suitable for the harvesting.🍍🍍

 

Lovely day & Just be a pineapple!

Stand tall, Wear a crown and Be sweet on the inside!
