Where is Guava From?
Guava fruits originated from Central and South America. In Kenya, Africa, guavas weren’t grown commercially until recently. Kenya’s major guava growing areas include Elgeyo-Marakwet, Kakamega, Uasin-Gishu, Kwale, Kilifi, Meru, Homabay, Siaya, Vihiga, Mombasa, Kitui, and Taita Taveta among others.
In partnership with USAID, Kenya Agricultural & Livestock Research Organization (KALRO) has distributed over 55,000 guava fruit seedlings. The partnership aims to empower Busia county farmers and increase guava fruit production in Kenya. The plant performs well in dry and agroecological regions, which explains why KARLO and other organisations are encouraging it.
Types of Guava fruits
In Kenya, there are two predominant types of guava fruits. They are classified in terms of the colour of their flesh and skin. The types of guava fruits include red or pink, and white. Red or pink guava fruit has juice, less sugar, and less starch content. They are often less seeded or seedless. White guava fruit has more sugar, more starch content and more seeds.

Pears Farming in Kenya
Pear farming started in China around 2000 BC and spread to other parts of the world. Pears found their way into Kenya in the 1920s through Christian missionaries from the United Kingdom. The missionaries settled in Kenya as early as 1844, but they started growing pears in the 1920s. The pears were first introduced in Limuru, an area with excellent climatic conditions.
In a few decades, you could find commercial pear production in different regions, such as Nyeri, Kiambu, Meru, and Naivasha. Today, Kenya is one of Africa’s leading producers of pears, exporting thousands of tonnes worth millions of dollars. According to the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS)2021 Survey, the export value of pears and other fresh fruits reached US$26.2 million in early 2021.

Tomato Farming In Kenya
Most tomato varieties have originated from the South American Andes region, where they had been cultivated for centuries. Over the years, explorers in the 16th century distributed the tomato fruit worldwide. On the other hand, some varieties are native to regions such as Africa and Asia, although they have been modified scientifically over time to boost yield. Cross-breeding of these varieties mainly occurred during global trade and colonisation.
Kenya’s commercialisation of tomatoes started in the mid-90s, amongst other fruits and horticultural crops. Tomatoes commercialisation thrived after the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation (KALRO) was formed. The organisation foresaw the production of approximately 400,000 tonnes of tomatoes a year after its formation. Today most Kenyan tomato farms are in Narok, Laikipia, Murang’a, some parts of Embu and Kirinyaga, Kajiado, and Makueni.
FrutPlanet is a leading exporter of fruits, vegetables, spices, and beverages that commits to customer satisfaction. Amongst FrutPlanet’s leading exports is the Avocado fruit.
Varieties: There are over 500 Avocado fruit varieties, but only about ten varieties are grown commercially worldwide. The most popular commercial variety is the Hass avocado. This variety accounts for about 95% of our total avocado exports. Other avocado varieties that FrutPlanet exports include Hass, Tonnage, Fuerte, Simmonds, Smooth 8, and Pinkerton. Irrespective of the avocado variety you’re looking to export, we have a wide database of farmers and can help you source it. Request a quote or contact us via email.
Size: Avocado varieties have varying sizes, which is crucial during their packaging. Usually, we name the sizes depending on the number of avocados needed to fill a 25-pound carton. The sizes range from 24 to 84. For example, if an avocado is size 24, you will need 24 Avocados to fill the 25 pounds carton. Generally, our sizing guide illustrates that the larger the designated number, the smaller the size of the avocado. At FrutPlanet exporters, we handle the inspection of the packaging process to ensure that you get the exact size you order.
Colour: A raw mature avocado is commonly green, although the colour may vary depending on the variety of the avocado. When the avocado ripens, its colour changes from green to black, although some varieties may remain green. FrutPlanet exports raw mature avocados that are green. We have a team of experts who work with farmers to ensure that the avocado is mature for the absolute satisfaction of our customers.

Skin Colour: Unripe banana fruits are solid green and waxy when freshly harvested and have a variety of shades in between as they ripen.

Immature banana fruits have a square or sharp angular shape in cross-section, which changes to a more rounded shape as it ripens.

FrutPlanet is a reliable and respected pawpaw exporter with a long history of providing excellent fruit quality at competitive prices. We adhere to rigorous export standards, and our team of experienced professionals is committed to providing you with the best possible pawpaw fruits.
Appearance and Colour: Pawpaws have a fleshy berry-like appearance and range from oval to nearly spherical. The skin is smooth green when unripe and turns to a yellow or orange hue as they ripen. However, depending on the variety, some may remain greenish even when fully ripened. Whatever the specification you quote in your order, FrutPlanet delivers. We priorities your fruit’s freshness and avoids sending fruit that is over-ripe, bruised or has any physical defects.
Fruit Sizes and Weight:A typical pawpaw fruit can weigh 9 to 11.5 kg. Their sizes vary from small to quite large, averaging about 15 to 45 cm long and 10 to 30 cm in diameter. However, some pawpaw varieties may be smaller than others. For example, pawpaw fruits from a semi-wild (naturalized) pawpaw plant may be 2.5 to 15 cm long. FrutPlanet ensures that the pawpaw fruits we deliver are of the correct size and weight according to the customers’ specifications.
Taste and Flavor: Pawpaws are slightly sweet with a tart aftertaste. However, the flavour can vary from fruit to fruit and even between different parts of the same pawpaw. For example, some people find its flavour reminiscent of cantaloupe, pineapple, or mangoes. Ripe pawpaw fruits are quite musky, while others taste buttery smooth depending on ripeness and variety. On the other hand, unripe pawpaw has more rigid flesh with little to no taste. At FrutPlanet, we focus on delivering the best quality pawpaws. We test our pawpaws for flavour and acidity before shipping them to you to ensure you’re getting a delicious product.
FrutPlanet is a global exporter of fruits, vegetables, spices, and more. One of the fruits we export is pineapples.
Colour: At the top of our consideration is the colour of the pineapple. Usually, fresh pineapple fruits have healthy green leaves and a greenish-yellow hue. A pineapple changes from green to yellow as it ripens; the yellow colouring indicates that the fruit is ripe. The FrutPlanet team is keen on the colour of the fruit before harvest.
Shell: Our experts have been examining fruits for years, therefore, accumulated a lot of experience. One quick feature that we examine is the texture of its skin or shell. A mature and ripe pineapple has a firm but soft shell. It can hardly squeeze because the fibre is mature and full of juice. FrutPlanet commits to delivering only quality pineapples.
Smell: A ripe, good-tasting fresh pineapple fruit has a unique scent. The smell is similar to a ripe mango fruit but a little distinguished. The smell often emanates from the lower bottom of the fruit. Otherwise, you’re less likely to feel any smell if the fruit is not ripe. Our team is obsessed with the scent of ripe pineapple and can easily set them apart. Be sure to receive fresh, unique-smelling fruits.
Size and Weight: Without a doubt, the ripe fresh pineapple fruit is heavier because of the enormous juice it possesses. When harvesting the fruits, our team takes critical notice of the weight of the fruit and its comparative size. We are keen on your specifications at this point. Some of our clients love medium but heavy pineapples. You can state your specifications by requesting a quote.
FrutPlanet is a leading strawberry exporter and supplier to different global markets. You can request a quote and enjoy our guaranteed customer satisfaction.
Colour: Unripe Strawberry fruit is green-white but turns red on ripening. The green pigment results from chlorophyll in their skin, while redness is caused by anthocyanin. Also, some strawberry fruits have a pink colouring. FrutPlanet can help you source and export strawberries from anywhere.
Shape and Size: The size and shape of strawberry fruits vary widely depending on the variety. Some have an oblate, rounded shape with a slightly flattened top and bottom.The most prevalent shape of the strawberry fruit is a long conic shape. A typical strawberry measures about 0.9 – 1.5 cm and weighs about 7 to 27 grams. The size measurements are greatly influenced by the minerals available and the environment the plant grows in. Here at FrutPlanet exporters, we prioritise your specification above anything. We’re the best strawberry exporter for your orders, whether you want small, medium, or large berries.
Organic: Unfortunately, most strawberry farmers use a lot of pesticides, some of which cannot be eroded by just washing the berries. And although you may not notice the taste difference, organic berries are more refreshing. Usually, organic berries ripen from inside towards the skin so that when you cut them, the skin and the flesh will be red. At FrutPlanet, we only source and export organically grown strawberry fruits. We source from strawberry farms that are committed to our campaign against the use of pesticides in farming.
Fresh:Larger berries have more fresh but less tasty juice than smaller berries. Naturally, larger berries have more water which ends up saturating the juice. Therefore, the smaller berries end up being juicier and sweeter. As a leading strawberry exporter, we follow your specifications to the letter, whether you want a small or large strawberry.
