In a month, it produces up to 15,000 dozens of chrysanthemums, 2,500 dozens of anthuriums and 2,000 dozens of roses which are delivered to other cities in Mindanao and Metro Manila. Blooming Petals has a total of 20 hectares of flower plantations in different locations. It currently grows 18 varieties of chrysanthemums and six varieties of anthuriums.
Cruising along the national highway in the town of Tupi will reveal a view of the majestic Mount Matutum, an active volcano that is part of the Pacific ring of fire. Dominating the landscape from General Santos to Koronadal City, it beckons hikers and mountain climbers alike to climb its lush green slopes, which prompted the local government to declare it an ecotourism site. The name, Matutum, comes from the local Blaa'n tongue "Amyak Maleh," meaning climb and plant. Indeed, those who want to trek up the mountain must plant something while they're there. Due to its volcanic waste, which has eroded to the bottom, its surrounding area yields fertile soil. Recognizing its abundant natural resources, the Dole company established pineapple plantations in nearby Polomok in 1963, said to be the largest in the world.
This highway destination favored by locals and tourists who are breezing through town is a great place to find a wide array of fruits and vegetables that are the ultimate when it comes to freshness.Attesting to South Coabato’s agricultural bounty, here you can find all sorts of fruits, from the small to the large and the familiar to the exotic.
