By constantly innovating and improving our trees, we are able to guarantee the quality of our fruit trees.
So what does ‘innovation’ mean at Carolus Trees in practical terms?
- Carolus Trees is constantly seeking to develop new apple and pear varieties. In-house cultivation is an important cornerstone in this respect. In doing so, we are keeping a close eye on the latest trends in fruit farming.
- We are forever looking for the best ways to treat and transport fruit trees. For instance, we tie trees together using flexible nets. Plus our fruit trees never spend an entire weekend in storage inside the truck.
- Carolus Trees’ staff take constant in-service training to hone their skills and know-how on an ongoing basis.
- We not only keep a keen eye on the latest trends in fruit farming, but in arable farming too. Carolus Trees’ entire machine pool is SatNav-controlled, which has seen us take our first steps towards precision farming.
International branches and offshoots: ambassadors abroad
Since the early 1990s, Carolus Trees has been building an extensive international network of fruit growers and cooperatives. We are investing heavily in collaborative associations with agents abroad who go out to propagate the values and vision of our fruit tree nursery as properly informed ambassadors. This is not without importance, as 85% of our production output is destined for the export markets.
