Thanks to its long working relationship with its partners, Maison PONTHIER can guarantee a unique variety of Ecuadorian fruit: Flavicarpa. More precisely, our passion fruits come mainly from the province of Esmeraldaz on the north-west coast of Ecuador. This region is also called the 'Green Province' because of the abundant vegetation and brilliant gems that the Spaniards thought they would find there. The region has an ideal climate for growing fruit all year round with a stable temperature, only varying between 21 and 25°C, and particularly high humidity. Almost every day, Esmeraldaz enjoys bright sunshine at dawn with tropical rain in the afternoon and at night.
