ALOE FRESH ORGANIC LEAVES AND PLANTS
Leaf shown is 60cm long however they can grown to over 90cm. The usual supply size varies from 40cm to 70cm.
Leaves can vary in size. Pictures below will give you examples of how much they can vary. The ratio of extracted gel to the leaf weight is remarkably constant.
We sell leaves by the Kilogram - examples are shown below.
Quantity of leaves per Kg can vary depending on sizes available when ordered. We do not take leaf-size orders, leaves are always the same quality and will produce the same ratio of gel to weight.
E.G.-10kg of leaves no matter the varying sizes always yields between 5.2 and 5.5 litres of juice after blending the extracted gel.

The plants at left are approximately 20 cm to 25cm tall from soil and are 12 months old.
Plants are usually sold about this size however various sizes are available.
These two plants are 12 to 18 months away from producing harvestable leaves that are mature enough to give you the nutrients desired however, plants are fully mature (in their complexity of nutrients) when between 3 years and 7 years old.
Summer is the optimum growing period so the time of year you plant them will determine the time they are large enough to harvest.
They will double in size in the first year and grow a further 30cm to 40cm or more over the following year.

Aloe Barbadensis needs warmth and prefers plenty of sunshine.
They will grown in warm indoor areas but not at the same rate as planted outside in well drained, sun filled areas.
In rainy conditions plants can brown (especially on the tips) but this condition will pass as the Summer sun appears. Summer is their optimum growing time.
