Arabicum Harvesting, Sorting, And Packaging
Arabicum harvesting takes place when the plants start producing stems with 8-12 flowers, typically 3-4 months after planting.
Our experienced harvesters cut the flower stem at the base above the bulb. We only harvest the stems with about 2-3 fully opened flowers. While harvesting arabicum, workers also check the quality of the flowers.
Our team of transporters delivers the cut arabicum flowers to packhouses where we sort and grade them. We weed out the pest-affected flowers and get rid of the withered bracts. Our sorters also grade the flowers according to length and colour. Then, we tie together the uniformly cut stem flowers in bundles of 10.
We pass the bundles to the packers within our packhouses to pack arabicum flowers in specially designed cartons ready for transportation. We label each consignment with the name, source and number of stems per box. Our flowers are cold-chain maintained from the fields to the delivery point.
As trustworthy arabicum flower exporters, our products are subject to inspection by relevant bodies such as KEPHIS and Global GAP. Therefore, we will deliver pest and disease-free products qualified for international markets. Request a quote to buy arabicum flowers Kenya online.
