Our Orkos coconut plantations are neither fertilized nor treated with pesticides. The only possible fertilization that takes place is through the coconut tree’s own palm leaves:
Between the rows of coconut trees, seawater channels are dug in which the falling palm leaves are left to lie
and these slowly decompose over time. This gently fertilizes the soil.
100 years ago, coconuts were harvested by workers climbing up the trees with ropes. Nowadays, workers hold the coconut bunches with a fork and cut them with long pruners. Once all the fruit has been harvested, it is rolled down to the water. On the water, the workers form
floating trains from the coconut bunches, which are pulled along the canals using poles.
After harvesting and transport, the coconuts are then sorted according to the appearance of their more or less green husk to determine the correct
stage of ripeness for the pleasure of your palate. Finally, the coconuts are stripped of their fibers without any treatment and then packed in boxes that are brought to our regions under controlled temperature.
