What a fantastic place, staff are knowledgeable and more than happy to give you more information or just show you around. The entire experience is built upon the level of interest you show and nothing was too much trouble. Absolutely a must do, doesn’t take long but lots of really interesting history to learn about!

Obnoxious male member of staff.
Immediately felt unwelcome by the disinterested, obnoxious male who begrudgingly showed me a couple of the green houses and then said watch the tv. So unwelcoming, the most unfriendly encounter on my whole time on the island. Left a very sour taste and I recommend to others visit the other plantations instead where the welcome is friendly and you are able to walk around by yourself.

This is wonderful. I went on the self-guided tour and it was very interesting. Afterwards you can relax in their cafe and have a cappuccino and fresh pineapple.

We visited all 3 plantations that are open to the public. Santo Antonio was the most informative one with a personal tour and a short informative video. The little shop is cute. All 3 plantains are close to each other, so visit all them!

Having been to another pineapple plantation in the area and feeling underwhelmed, we decided to come to this one and it did not disappoint.

You are invited to watch an intro video of the pineapple plantation process at first, and then you are taken on a small tour with a tour guide, ours was a lovely young lady who was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions.

They have a cute little cafe area but unfortunately only with a couple of tables seats so we couldn't stay longer, but they offer a small but lovely range of pineapple inspired items (we bought the pineapple drink and pineapple jam).

Would definitely recommend as the plantation process is explained very clearly and found it very fascinating.

Not sure what all the rave reviews are about. The short video was informative, but I could have just found that on YouTube. The pineapple cookies and the liquor we purchased was also 2x the price for exact same products being sold at the local shops in Punta Delgado and at the duty free shop at the airport.

It was the first site we visited in our 12 days in the Azores - as it was raining, The visit was interesting and as people who come from agricultural background we asked a lot of questions and we were given a lot of information.

Great place! It starts with a short movie about theirs production. After that there is a 10 minutes tour. All this is free but you can buy something in the shop after the tour and it’s worth to do it.
One of the best experience on the island!

Who knew the pineapple had such a story?

The tour is very brief, but entirely worth it. When I arrived, a tour was in progress, so I poked around the reception area. The host returned only a few minutes later, by which time I had read through the placards.

Along with a small family, we viewed three green houses that featured the fruit in different phases of maturity. I was surprised to learn that a Azorean pineapple takes more than two years to fully mature.

The tour is free and there are some great gifts to take home. I grabbed pineapple jam and a Pineapple Kima Soda. The plantation is minutes from Ponta Delgada hotels. I found it quite easily with my mobile phone satnav.

My questions I forgot to ask;
- Does the fruit grow faster or slower in other regions Brazil, Hawaii?
- Are the SA pineapple sought after and do they fetch a premium?
- Who are your main importers, branded companies and or by country?

And lastly, I would like to have sampled the fruit at the plantation, but it was not on offer. Fortunately it was featured on this evenings menu at Tasquinha Vieira.

Dear Mark, We are very pleased by everything you just said! We would also like to explain to you every question you didn't got answer from. Firstly we do export mainly to Portugal mainland, because right now we are on a process of reestruturing the firm fully and invest as much as possible in marketing, tourism and the most important, our base greenhouses and pineapples. Our pineapples do grow slower than other ones, because we have to create an artificial environment for them, so when ours take more than 2 years to grow fully, for example in africa or SA it takes more or less than e full year to grow them. But also you have to know that we can also grow them in a shorter time, with the help of pesticides, but we only produce biologically, so that's also why it takes longer. The SA pineapples is different from ours nowadays, because we have 150 years of development of a different fruit. We basiclly dont import any fruit, we just sell almost everything on the local market because of reestruture I told you about. We didn't offer any samples because at this time of the year, the fruit isn't as sweet as in the summer, and we have fewer stock, because most of it has been sold in the summer and in the christmas because, we are talking about the king of the fruits and those are the times of the year they are most selled. Anyway, we hope to see you again in the future, and I hope next time you do try our pineapple because if you liked Tasquinha's Vieira one, believe us, our is the best! If you have any more questions please fill free to talk with us, because, we do love to answer our costumers. Thank you!

I've been to pineapple farms in Hawaii where you see tens of thousands growing in the fields for miles, but this was different, they grow them in green houses. Also found out that these are smaller.
