My last few days I'm mainly focusing my time in the lab and packhouse. There are always lots of trials to set up or to write up the results of so I have been getting stuck in with that. For each trial we have to make two controls, plus then normally two different concentrations, in both wax and water. This adds up to 48 pineapples so there is plenty to do! I'm starting to get the hang of spotting the yeast and fungus colonies on the peduncles now so ...

Buffalo farm!!!

The automatic sizing machine turned out just to be a big version of the machine used for apples etc that I saw in South Africa where the fruit ...

Pineapple farm

A travel blog entry by klynch35313


I arrived at Anexco (ananas export company) on Monday, Fyffes pineapple farm where I will be spending the rest of my placement. Everyone is really friendly and the farm looks interesting. I am staying in a little flat, basically a bedroom with a fridge and an ensuite bathroom which is really simple and lovely and is in between Kellie and Liam (commercial manager of the farm). It's about 30 seconds walk from the office so ...
