TROPICAL PINEAPPLE PLANTATION IN AN UNBEATABLE SETTING

BY:

My first stop on this trip to the most meridional island on the archipelago had to be a visit to Sergio, the owner of acres and acres of tropical pineapples next to La Fuga de Gorreta Cliffs.

There, he told me how he had had the idea of planting pineapples and moving on from the tradition of banana plantations and what the process is like for production. What struck me most, besides the arduous work of cultivating the land, was the exact location of where the fruit, of incomparable beauty, was. Sergio has definitely managed to create the perfect balance between landscape and gastronomy, where the valley itself protects the area: a contrast that is worth seeing.
