Our Perfect Pickings

Pico-Gro, a picturesque portrayal of herbaceous and floral perfection. If Dante’s Paradiso had an earthly manifestation, if the garden of Eden was edible… but wait, it was, and so is Pico-Gro!

Pea blossoms and Pansies, Parsley and pepper leaves. Intriguing and peculiar, delightfully different, leaves and petals, roots and tubers. Textures and flavours and riotous rainbows of crunchy consumable colour to inspire even the most tangential chef.

 

Our Midrand based farm is the colourful cradle where our culinary creations are cultivated. Under the auspicious guiding hands of Erika Oberholzer, Pico-Gro’s edible delights are grown, washed, cooled, packed and shipped daily to destinations around the globe.

 

Managed by Erika Yolandi and Charlize, and supported by an exceptional enthusiastic team, Pico-Gro supplies culinary art to elite gastronomic establishments all over the world. Our range of edible flowers, micro cress and speciality leaves has recently been crowned by the new assortment of rainbow micro vegetables grown and packed by HerBika our sister company in rural Mpumalanga. Situated on 28 Ha of land, and managed by Hendry Bouwer, HerBika is well suited for larger scale production and blessed with an abundance of underground water.

Our products are available year-round though some range changes take place within the edible flowers because of seasonality.

 

Innovation is our strongest suite and we are indeed world leaders in the development of our edible flower ranges. We use environmental manipulation techniques to extend seasons and produce rare and atypical fruit and leave colours in our products to ensure their unique and constantly re invented appeal. We also offer a noteworthy range of speciality leaves and indigenous forage foods from Africa and around the world. Our product development team is constantly scouring the world arena for new and remarkable varieties to add to our extensive, appealing availability list.

 

Our export business is built on the close, synergetic relationship that had developed over the past 4 years with Yukon International who’s baby vegetables are well complimented by our range. Together we offer a complete solution for the high-end gastronomy trade around the globe.
