        Types of Watermelon

        There are four watermelon classes: seedless, picnic, icebox, and yellow/orange. The types of watermelons shouldn’t be mistaken for varieties:

        • Seedless Watermelons: They were created in the 1990s, and the main aim was to get rid of the seeds while retaining freshness and taste.  This type of watermelon requires different farming attention but is still grown in Kenya.
        • Picnic Watermelons: This type of watermelon is known for being large and fit for a picnic gathering. 
        • Icebox Watermelons: This type of watermelon is small and was first introduced in the 1950s. They are best for small families.
        • Yellow/ Orange Watermelons: This classification of watermelons has yellow or orange-coloured flesh. In addition, they can be seeded or seedless.

        Irrespective of the type of watermelon you want to export, FrutPlanet can help. We source from small-scale farmers in Kenya, package, and deliver to you, covering all the logistics. Order watermelons for sale from FrutPlanet by requesting a quote today.

We handle bulk watermelon orders for our international clients by sourcing, sorting, packaging, and delivering. We will take care of all the logistics until the bulk watermelon for sale is delivered. How do we inspect the watermelon? 

        The most conspicuous feature to observe is the watermelon shell. A ripe watermelon should have a thick rind. But how do you inspect a watermelon? Our team thumps or pressures the watermelon shell with the hands to check if it’s ripe. A ripe watermelon is hard and produces a deep solid sound. Overripe melons have a soft shell and hollow sound because the fibre attaching the fresh has relaxed. Our other selection factors include inspecting the watermelon’s shape and weight.

        The frutPlanet team transports the sorted fruits to our packhouse in large carton boxes stacked with grasses to prevent bruising the fruit’s skin, which could lower the shelf life.

Cross border method involves having a large fibreboard divided into compartments for individual ripe watermelons. Stacking involves putting the ripe watermelons in one big carton together. 

        Our watermelon export packing methods withstands rough handling, compression, vibration, and temperature shifts during transit. We transport the fruits via air to ensure delivery is within 2 to 4 days after packaging.

          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.

        • Fresh French Beans Sold By: FrutPlanet

          FrutPlanet is a leading global exporter of fruits, vegetables, and spices. Want to export French beans? Request a quote, and our customer service team will engage you. 

          Pods. There are three categories of pods; Extra fine pods, fine pods, and bobby beans. Extra fine pods are tender, puffy, and seedless. They have no strings, and their diameter is less than 6mm and a length of 10cm. On the other hand, fine pods have small seeds, soft strings, and tender, puffy skin. The pods are longer than extra fine pods by about 3mm. Bobby beans are generally bigger and large. At FrutPlanet, we only source either fine or extra pods for our export customers.

          Shape: French beans are either straight or curvy with pointed ends. The length of French beans ranges between 6 and 12 cm. The pod’s skin should be smooth, and the ends should be tapered and pointed. Deformity and curling of French beans are signs of irregular watering. At FrutPlanet, we handpick and package all the beans and ensure we get rid of deformed beans.

          Colour: French beans are usually green, although a yellow variety exists. The yellow French beans are Haricot Jaune, a common vegetable in French cuisines. Green French beans can turn yellow due to a lack of water, and as a result, they lack nutrients. FrutPlanet has specialised professionals who check the beans before packaging.

          Smell: The French beans’ smell isn’t very noticeable. However, sensitive people realise that it has a faint grassy vegetal smell. On the other hand, if they’re ill-odored, whether green or mouldy, dispose them. The French beans can be green, yet they have undergone bacterial growth internally, which leads to a bad smell. Our team individually examines each bean when packaging to ensure that our customers only get quality produce.
