Depending on the time of year, the roof glasses of the greenhouses need to be whitewashed with Slaked Lime (Calcium Hydroxide).

This method is vital to the production of the Best Pineapple in the World since it helps to control the temperature inside the greenhouse but, and most importantly, prevents the leaves from getting sunburnt due to the direct exposure to sun radiation, providing shading and allowing an adequate development of the plant.

The “whitewashing” method, applied with long brushes in each row of glasses, is more frequent during the spring and summer months when there is more sunlight.
