You too can enjoy the harvest, and in the end take the fruits of your labours with you.
The road to the plantation is also very exciting. To reach the plantations you have to drive with the traditional Neretva vehicles, which are the vessels of farmers, fishermen and hunters, without which, for centuries, everyday life in this surreal landscape would be impossible and unthinkable.
A short break for refreshment with traditional brandy and dried figs is followed by a short course of instruction in mandarin harvesting. Since the quality and durability of the fruit is affected by the method of harvesting, it is very important to know exactly how these golden fruits should be picked. The experts will teach you that the mandarins should be picked with a quick twitch of the hand together with a U-turn motion in order not to leave the stem and a part of the peel on the tree. However, it is very certain that, after this instruction, follows a pledge that mandarins should not be picked by hand. Instead you will be introduced to special curved and convex scissors and demonstration of their use.
