Hallo, ik ben Andres Nuñez en ik teel ananas in Costa Rica!
Globally Responsible spacer Free from Pesticides and GMOs


Hallo, ik ben Andres Nuñez uit Costa Rica en ik teel biologische ananas voor Nature & More. Onze boerderij heet Finca La Virgen. Hartelijk dank voor het kopen van ons fruit!

Onze landerijen liggen in de buurt van het dorpje La Virgen, in een vallei bij de Poas vulkaan. Dit is een actieve vulkaan. Dit gebied heeft veel tropisch regenwoud, doorgeweven met stroompjes en watervallen. De vijf meter regenval per jaar levert bijna al het nodige water. Door de vulkaan is de bodem zeer rijk aan mineralen. Door dit alles is het gebied ideaal geschikt voor biologische ananasteelt.

La Virgen is opgezet in 1991 en is een onderdeel van Dole Organic. Naast ananas hebben we ook wat papaya's. Een deel van de velden ligt langs de rivierbanken, die we recentelijk hebben herbebost met inheemse bomen. We willen met ons bedrijf het goede voorbeeld geven en laten zien dat het heel goed mogelijk is om op commerciële schaal ananas te telen en tegelijk duurzaam om te gaan met de natuur en mensen.

En de smaak?
"Best pineapple ever! In my family we all agree that the pineapple from you was the best we have ever tried. Keep up the good work! Best regards Anders."

What a great taste!!

Avatar door Martine Delveaux Antwerp, Belgium op 25-06-2017 15:52
Not being such a great lover of pineapple but nevertheless decided to buy one whilst being on a diet and condemned to certain fruits. This was the best decision ever! Never tasted pineapple like this. What a great taste, so sweet and juicy! What a difference to the pineapples from the supermarket!! So glad I discovered this fruit from the Garden of Eden!!
Keep up the good work!!

Warmest regards,


super taste pineapple!

he comido la piña bio y estaba muy sabrosa. También muy jugosa.

Me alegro de que más y más gente cultivar verduras y frutas orgánicas Saben mucho mejor.
¡Gracias por este esfuerzo!

Dear Andres, I'm a Belgian blogger, who loves a pure life, so I called my blog in Dutch
A few weeks ago I met Voedselteams, so I discovered your pineapple... I had him in my breakfast before a 10k run this morning...with apple and Fairtrade banana, baked in coconutoil. It was an awesome taste..this sweet pineapple! Can't imagine that I will eat others...
So keep up doing the good work!
Best regards, Carla

Biologic pineapple

Avatar door Rini Bosschaerts, Belgium op 26-02-2015 13:41
I'm so glad that your pineapple is biologic and fare trade but most of all "always fresh with a lot of juice!"
For me it's really the BEST quality pineapple! Congratulations ! Keep it like that !

Very nice pineapple, lovely taste! Glad to support your project..

your pineapples

Avatar door rifka,amsterdam Netyherlands op 29-01-2015 22:07
I have been eating biological dynamic (organic) for over 30 years. One thing that I've missed is delicious tropical fruit. Now that I've discovered your biological pineapples, I'm enjoying them immensely. Great work. And the price is very reasonable. I appreciate that as well because I live on a low budget income. Thanks again and keep up the great work!!

I certainly will search for this fine product of your farm.
Did not know yet that in Costa Rica there were farms for this wnderful product.
So far, I only visited the also DOLE farms of Hawai. Good luck !!!

It was a delicious pineapple. I could eat it without getting blisters in my mouth, that was amazing. I wonder how this is possible.
All the best for the future,

fantastic pineapple

Avatar door T.M. Bevers op 13-08-2014 20:55
thank you for growing such lovely pineapples. i must say i have had quite some bland organic pineapples, but this one was truly marvellous. my one year old son had pineapple for the first time, and loved it! wish you all the best and hope your company continues to flourish.


Avatar door Joy Boelens op 09-08-2014 16:19
Hello Andres and all of your workers and colleagues,

The pineapple was absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for helping it grow and getting it sent to Holland, where I bought it at the Ekoplaza in Alkmaar.

Greetings from Joy from the Netherlands


Avatar door Jacob Schoemaker Netherlands op 28-07-2014 20:35
My son works at Aosta Waddinxveenin the Netherlands as sales manager and he brought me one of your organic pineapples.
We have tasted this and this is one of the best pineapples i have taste in years.
I, myself have worked over 32 years in the fruit bissines.

No allergic reaction anymore !

Avatar door Leo, the Netherlands op 21-07-2014 11:09
Hi Andres and other people from Corsicana!
The pineapple we bought was very good, just as a lot of other people already mentioned.
Some time ago we found that my wife got an allergic reaction after eating some 'normal' pineapple pieces. She thought that eating fresh pineapple would be a no-go-area for her in future. We tried it with a good Corsicana pineapple and there was no allergic reaction at all. From now on only Corsicana pineapples for us !!!

Delicious pineapple

Avatar door Jasper from The Netherlands op 12-07-2014 12:37
Hi Andres!

The pineapple from your farm was absolutely delicious! The great taste instantly reminded me of my visit to Costa Rica in 2007, which is by far the most beautiful country I've ever seen!
Thank you very much and keep up the good work!

Greetings from The Netherlands!

Como fan de Costa Rica, desde 1990, y apenas regresado de un viaje en tu linda pais, estoy con mucha felicidad que usted produce piñas biologicos y fairtrade. Conosco el gran problema de la continamicion en el produsca de piñas y bananos y por eso te felicito hacerlo diferente y con mas respeto al humao y la naturaleze.
Felicidades. Voy a contar a todos mis amigos Costaricenses que ustedes excuisten. Es posible para los Ticos comprar piñas y otros frutas posiblemente donde su finca?

Very good pineapple, very good and beautiful taste, very juicy, very natural! Keep up the good work! Thank you!

Een heerlijke zoete ananas met een pure smaak. Voor mij is net zo belangrijk dat hij duurzaam geteeld en fairtrade is.
Bedankt en heel vel succes! Ik ga voor een volgende heerlijke ananas Groet Rinske

Can you please tell me how the pineapples reaches us in Belgium? Is it by boat or plane?


Avatar door Editor Nature & More op 25-02-2013 15:29
Dear Birgit, thank you for your question. Our pineapples are always transported to Europe by boat. 99% of all Nature & More fruit & vegetables from overseas are transported by boat. Best regards, Nature & More.

Ik geniet iedere keer als ik deze ananas eet. In vergelijking met andere ook biologische ananas is dit de zoetste en sappigste. Heeeeerlijk.

hello everyone, we are since more than 15 years client from organizations who are distributing BIO-fruit and vegatabels for particuliers. Excuse me for my faults in this text!
The pinapple we received was the best we ever eat, it tasted sweet and the constitution of te meat was juicy and wonterfull
flavored. To reduce the sweetness , we added some vanilla icecream, it compaires heavenly.
Thank you all for the efforts you all make to keep a good respect for the nature as it gives us the opportunity to preserve the planet earth. Kind regards.


Avatar door Agnes Hoekstra op 28-03-2012 12:47
Hello. We also receive a bio-fruit package every week and last week your pineapple was in the bag. It tasted so good!
Keep up the good work. I have taken a look at the trailer film of your company and I was very impressed.

We were very happy to receive a Bio organic ananas in our Bio-fruit package ( we are member of a Bio-food organization).We have wait a few days before eating it because we wanted to be sure it was ready to eat. It was very nice inside when cutting it open but unfortunately we missed the sweetnes in the taste of the ananas. Anyhow we can imagine that sometimes products differs from another time so we are waiting for our next ananas and hope to have sweet one!
Kind regards


Avatar door Alex van Erp op 22-03-2012 09:37
Dear Maria,
Sorry to hear that the pineapple wasn't as tasty as you expected. Nature is sometimes unpredictable. We will contact you to send you a normal good one!
