The Harvest of Naturelez Capers
The caper plant starts to produce its first buds during May which indicates the beginning of the harvest season that lasts till August.
The caper buds of the shrub like plant are harvested early in the morning by hand. During their seasonal life spans, capers plants go through the bud (caper), flower and lastly fruit (caper berries) phases.
Every caper plant has its own biological clock and it is challenging to harvest the right plant at the right moment. Additional to capers Naturelez also harvests caper berries, caper leaves and caper flowers. As Naturelez we harvest our plants with the collaboration and experience of the local farmers without harming the nature to ensure environmental sustainability.
