We specialize in pineapples of the MD2 variety, better known as the extra sweet or golden pineapple.
This type of pineapple stands out for its great taste. It’s much sweeter and contains less acid than other pineapples.
Our organic golden pineapples are 35% sweeter than conventional pineapples because they ripen in 16 months, as opposed to 14 months for its conventional counterpart. The additional two months allow for the plant to accumulate more natural sugars, making it one of the sweetest pineapples on the market.
Growing 100% organic pineapples is achieved by eliminating the use of synthetic agrochemicals while transitioning to natural methods of pest and plague control; for example, recycled black plastic tarps surrounding each plant reduces 80-90% of soil erosion while preventing weeds from choking out the plants.
The Pineapple is hand harvested and carefully transported to prevent bruising. Then it is taken to the packaging plant for inspection and cleaning. The process begins by washing and lightly coating the pineapple with a liquid wax to reduce water loss and improve fruit appearance. The fruit then goes through a final grading process and is then packaged for our customers.
The container contains a refrigeration unit, where the fruit is transported at 7º C from Costa Rica to the United States by ship, arriving in approximately one week. Both our Conventional and Organic Pineapples meet all USDA requirements.
