At Santo António you will get to know everything about pineapple farming. Farming is on a low scale and dates back to 1911 but the fruit produced is of highest quality mainly consumed on the island itself.

The show room is stylish but simple and I learned that it takes 2.5 years to produce one pineapple of this quality. One pineapple per plant. Then you start from scratch. With 8-10 Euro per kilo it comes with a price tag.

Fair winds…

Nice video shown as an introduction.
