Owners
Bousaam Pineapples is owned and managed by Regardo Müller and Karel de Haas.

Our cultivar
The scientific name for pineapple is Ananas Cosmosus, a member of the Bromeliaceae family. Bousaam Pineapples primarily farms with the cultivar Queen Victoria, also known as “baby pines”. The Queen Pineapple is very popular, sweeter and more palatable to be eaten fresh than some other cultivars. The Queen Pineapple has a sweet yellow flesh with a high sugar content and thorny leaves.

About the farm
Bousaam farm is located north of Durban and Richardsbay, in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
The farm is set in a tranquil and beautiful country area, sheltered by mountains with rich, deep soil that produces healthy fruit.
The conditions are perfectly, naturally designed to produce the tastiest pineapples, with mild winters and hot, African summers which wake and activate the sugar, creating sweet fruit.
Pineapples are rotated on a 15 year soil resting cycle, which contributes to our quality and immaculate taste. This long rotation allows the soil to regenerate itself to such an extent that allows us to eliminate the use of soil fumigants and limits the reliance on artificial fertilisers, which lessens the impact of our farming operations on the environment.
