“Pomegranate has been a stable fruit for us (farmers) for a long period of time in terms of exports. The fruit requires lot of monitoring throughout the growing period. It takes at least 4 years to see a couple of mature pomegranates in a tree, so you can imagine the hard work that goes in the production. Even though, I worked with other companies in the past, I have got better information and knowledge with Don Limón, which was lacking in the past”.
