Our 2017 harvest was a success! We worked hard to select the best wild stands in BC. Our harvesters did an awesome job picking and achieved our projections and more. As we move forward into production we are excited about this year's pure Canadian pine pollen; this is our largest harvest yet!
So, let's take a moment to thank the forest and the pine trees by appreciating the intricacies of the pollination and pine seed development. After all, it is to the pine trees' generous gift that we owe this wonderful super food.
Unlike flowering plants, the anatomy of the pine tree favors cross pollination; the female cones often grow and developed on separate branches as the pollen cones and in a single stand, often the trees alternate pollination years also. After the fertilization, it can take up-to three years for the seed to develop.
