Our Field

Home / Our Field
There are 67 hectares that house a range of 11 different varieties of blueberries. Established varieties of proven quality and condition, such as Briggita and Legacy, represent 58% of the planted area. To which new varieties are added, with excellent post harvest results that represent around 22% of the orchard. The remaining area houses varieties such as Blue Gold, Duke, Elliott, Dennis and Blue Crop that play a strategic role allowing us to extend the harvest cycle until the first half of March, in addition to the early recruitment of around 500 people who help us cover the harvest of each season.

With this distribution of varieties a harvest is achieved, from December 15 to the last fortnight of March, which allows a production peack in week 3-4 and 5. In this way it is possible to enter the market at the moment that the zone South Center has passed its production peack and the South zone is beginning its harvest with very low volumes.
