When the fruit is ready, we harvest every day without skipping any days. We’ll harvest a tree as many as ten times! We select only the ripest fruit.
To save costs, the industry typically harvests only two or three times and skips days between harvest. That’s why you’ll often see a wide range of
maturity in other packers’ boxes.
