Maison Ponthier can guarantee a unique variety of Ecuadorian fruit: Flavicarpa. More specifically, these passion fruits come mainly from the province of Esmeraldaz, on the northwest coast of Ecuador. This region is also called the "green province" because of the abundant vegetation and the shiny gems that the Spaniards thought they would find there.
The region has an ideal climate for growing fruit all year round, with a stable temperature, varying only between 21 and 25°C, and particularly high humidity. Almost every day, Esmeraldaz enjoys bright sunshine at dawn and tropical rains in the afternoon and night.
