Did you know that it takes almost THREE YEARS for a single pineapple to fully mature? Meet Fernando! Fernando knows everything there is know about pineapple and is one of the many pineapple farmers we work with to bring our fans the highest quality organic dried fruits.

Producer: Fernando

Fernando explains to us that the time dedicated to planning and planting is only part of his commitment to producing the highest quality fruit. He also meticulously cleans and examines each piece of fruit by hand.

Besides being a skilled producer of both pineapple and pitahaya, Fernando is responsible for coordinating and executing the deliveries and pickups of the harvested crops for many producers in the area.

Thanks for all of your hard work, Fernando!
