How Do You Harvest Alstroemeria?
FrutPlanet starts the harvesting process once we confirm your order to buy alstroemeria. Our seasoned team handpicks, assembles, and loads the plants into refrigerated lorries that transport the cut flowers to our packaging facilities.
When harvesting alstroemeria, our farm employees shake the flowers to ensure the buds are firm enough.
Before grading and packaging, we sort the plants to achieve uniformity. Our expert crew inspects for physical damage, defects, parasites, and more.
We set aside flowers that do not meet our quality standards before grouping the rest based on stem length, thickness, bud tightness, colour, and sturdiness.
We pack alstroemeria in bunches, typically 10 stems or according to customer specifications. Each bunch delivered will look uniform. When packaging the flowers, we also apply appropriate spacing to avoid bruising petals. Correct spacing also promotes freshness.
Our experienced packers carefully fold together each bunch, forming a somewhat conical shape. Individual folding reduces the risk of friction generated if packages get rubbed against each other during shipping. FrutPlanet exports fresh-cut flowers in cardboard boxes with prorated plastic sleeves to promote efficient airflow.
We transport the flowers quickly to ensure customers receive them fresh. Request a quote to buy alstroemeria from FrutPlanet today, and we will exceed your expectation in all aspects.
