Ekumfi Atwia Wad Organic Farmers Association (EAWOFA) are small-scale producers in central region of Ghana.

Culture - Production

We use suckers from previous pineapple harvests to plant new ones, ensuring sustainability.

It takes an average of one and half years for the fruit to be ready. To guarantee top-quality fruits, our pineapples are tested on the field before harvesting.

The start of flowering is controlled by an enzyme called ethylene. By nature, pineapples produce little ethylene, compared with other fruits such as papaya.

The sugarloaf pineapple remains green even when ripe.

Contrary to what we can think of pineapples don’t ripe after harvest. It must therefore get ripe before harvest. It’s not like banana that continues to ripe after harvest.

The yellow pineapple that we see everywhere is less fragile and travels better than the sugarloaf variety.

 Those varieties are smooth cayenne and MD2. It’s like a green and yellow apple, the two are different varieties and keep different colours when ripe.

The Fresh Pineapple Shop
