A procedure that cultivates and harvests only the best peppers
In the month of May, once the plants are ready, they are moved from the seedbeds to the pimental. Pimentales are the fields where the peppers plants are sown, that have previously been worked and where furrows have been dug. Manually, the plants are placed in the hole the tool known as “muleta” left behind.
Three days later the first “grip irrigation” is performed, and repeated as per tradition from that day forth every 6 days, throughout the whole summer, until the pepper fully matures.
Harvest begins around the fortnight in September, manually choosing one by one the fully developed and matured peppers and discarding the ones lacking in satisfactory quality for the process.
