Bees and Sandía Fashion

The growth of the Sandía Fashion is truly amazing. We can’t help but marvel every time we see a small plant and see how over the days, despite the weather conditions depending on the year in which it is sown, it grows into a great product.

The bees are an essential part of this growth. In one of the sheds that Sandía Fashion has been working with for 20 years, the owner tells us that the process begins when the hives are released for more than 30 days, at temperatures of more than 33 degrees plus a humidity of at least 80%.

They pollinate the plant as many times as necessary during the period when they are free in the field.

The honeybee is a type of bee that pollinates watermelon plants and other flowering plants. Bees can fly from one flower to another, transferring pollen from the male part of the flower to the female part. It is thanks to bees that many types of plants can grow and reproduce.

Bees are also responsible for pollinating vegetables, nuts and seeds. Pollen sticks to their bodies as they fly around collecting nectar. Bees and Fashion Watermelon are really two inseparable allies during the growing process.

The Sandía Fashion gets all the nutrients it needs during the growing process, which we will continue to tell you about in our blog.
