Our delicious, juicy golden pineapples hail from our farm, Las Brisas in Costa Rica. It is the first pineapple farm in the world to be accredited with Rainforest Alliance. It is also the first pineapple farm in the world to produce and export pesticide free pineapples.
Las Brisas is 1041 Hectares in size. We plant and harvest for 52 weeks of the year which is why we can grow more than 21 million pineapples a year!
It takes a full 13 months to produce one single pineapple. Costa Rica’s rainy, humid climate makes it the perfect place to grow pineapples.
Because of Costa Rica’s unique climate we can grow pineapples all year round there!
Pineapple plants flower 8-9 months after planting and the fruits become ready 13-14 months after planting
The perfect pineapple should not be too soft (give it a light squeeze), it should smell aromatic (sweet & tropical) and it should be heavy in weight
Turn your pineapple upside down for 30 minutes before cutting into it – it will help the juices distribute evenly in your pineapple
