To guarantee long life, it is especially important that your Leatherleaf be cold processed in order to retain its dark green color and long life. Our FernCool® process is the only system that immediately chills the fern and keeps it cold during the entire packaging and shipping process. All foliage is conditioned in a high humidity pre-cooler before being packed in the refrigerated packinghouse. This is the only way to sufficiently cool Leatherleaf so that it keeps its fresh appearance. Look for the FernCool® label to make sure every step is taken to guarantee the freshness of your Leatherleaf and other fresh cut greens.
