The cultivation of blueberries is shorter than that of raspberries and strawberries, in this case it is from February to June, only 5 months.

For the cultivation of our blueberries we use hydroponic plantations, all our blueberry plantations use this method, improving production and the quality of harvesting, thus we achieve the best quality of this fruit.
