PRODUCTION & FARMING TECHNIQUES

Sol melons are developed in our nurseries and later transplanted to the fields where they are grown and harvested when they reach full maturity. The fruit then is transported to our certified packing houses, in accordance with all FDA-approved food-safety regulations. We pack our melons into breathable bags to ensure the best quality experience for our product while preventing any possible contaminations.
