MANGO

The high luminosity found in the north of Peru allows mangoes to develop an intense reddish color. The Keitt variety extends from October to November while Kent is harvested from November to April. The most critical stage along the season is during harvesting. In order to identify the precise point to begin harvesting, we display several tests to measure dry matter, color, brix and firmness. Then, we perform thorough training programs to our harvesting teams so they are prepared to choose the fruits from the tree with the optimum maturity point.


In our packinghouse the fruit is rigorously selected and treated under strict quality standards. Through our process the fruit is exposed to a treatment of hot water to eliminate potential phytosanitary problems.
