Also known as ‘Crown of thorns’ or ‘spurge,’ Tanzania euphorbia (E. hetrochroma Pax and E. milii) is a bushy cactus-like flowering plant. It is common to find in Arusha through lakeside Mwanza and the capital Dodoma in cattle-rearing areas. The main varieties here are Euphorbia tirucalli, hetrochroma and milli. Families grow them in their bomas, meaning home compounds, especially along the fences. The tree produces soft, round flowers in pairs of two. The most common colors include red, violet, pink and white while the leaves are usually bright green with an attractive lime-yellow near the flower part.
The euphorbia family is made up of hundreds of species. The most common in Tanzania like E. corolatta have adapted cacti hardiness and sometimes so closely resemble their desert counterparts that it is easy to confuse the two. Though their primary uses are herbal, they also serve as sources of multi-colored display flowers. The tiny blooms differ from their cactus cousins in that they are less showy.
We source Tanzania euphorbia from family growers in the northwest particularly Mwanza. We also get them from the north, principally Arusha and in the south, especially Dodoma. Our sources own less than two acres of land alongside their cattle-grazing fields. This must be the secret for the entirely organic management of the land under farmyard manure. The sources also rarely use chemical sprays, which makes their produce to be outstanding in quality.
We harvest Tanzania euphorbia by severing the long stems with open blooms using scissors or sharp knives. Our gloved farmhands usually come with water vials where they put each stem as they harvest it. They remove any foliage that is below the watermark. They then deliver the blooms to the sorting bay for grading.
We remove any thorns from the stems and then trim the few leaves that may have remained next to the flowers. We keep the healthy, open blooms in grades of size and color. We bunch the longest ones of about 10 inches long separate from the smallest of 4 inches. The same applies to similar-colored flowers.
We finally pack Tanzania euphorbia in telescopic, low-height produce boxes. We pack them either individually or in bunches of 4-inch, 6-inch, and 10-inch flower heads. We wrap each in a soft plastic sleeve so that it keeps fresh. We separate the heads from other bunches by the use of soft wax paper. We also stick to produce labels inclusive of the name of the variety, the number of stems per box and the packing date.
We store Tanzania euphorbia at the baseline temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. We keep them in their packing boxes in a cool, dry environment away from light to keep their colors fresh. You can expect the shipment to stay in its harvest-time condition for the next 14 days.
We transport Tanzania euphorbia via our special vans that bring the crop to the Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha on the same day of harvesting. The vehicles are fitted with refrigeration equipment onboard which aids in cooling the produce. There is a guarantee that shipment will reach your point within 48 hours.
In short, you can now avail one of the rarer flower exports from East Africa, namely Tanzania euphorbia courtesy of our family growers. These sources grow the blooms under the natural Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)-certified conditions away from chemical contaminants. Our handling process usually follows phytosanitary terms as we not only use sterilized cutting tools but wear gloves throughout the post-harvest phase. Concerning quantity, we keep the supplies in the right tonnage by growing surplus. Besides, our prices are entirely fair as we match them to your budget. Make an order today!
