Omar Zaidan, fruits and vegetables consultant, has shared the item below with us.
ANECOOP, the leading Spanish watermelon operator, has started shipping about 2,000 kg of heart-shaped mini-watermelons to the UK market.
A British supermarket chain wanted a differentiated product for its premium customers. These heart-shaped watermelons are of the same variety as the BOUQUET mini-watermelon and their cultivation is done exclusively on request. At production, a completely natural process is used for the fruit to grow in this particular form.
BOUQUET seedless watermelons have made ANECOOP the leading Spanish operator of this fruit and a leader on the European market. ANECOOP sold in 2017 nearly 132,000 tonnes of watermelons and plans to market this year 150,000 tonnes, of which 80% will be seedless watermelons.
