HARVEST TIMELINE

Growing sunshine takes knowledge, patience, and passion. Our fruits are cultivated and harvested with the utmost care and precision by the hands of our hardworking farmers.

Dole bananas are primarily grown in the tropical climes of the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. In the Philippines, our bananas move on a journey from seedling propagation in Dole’s biotech laboratory and nurseries to farms at low-, mid- and high-elevation finally ending with our harvesters and pack houses at the precise moment needed, so as to be at shop shelves at the perfect stage of ripeness.

The entire process ensures a steady stream of high-quality bananas with a sweetness that’s uniquely Dole.
