Jasmine buds are harvested early in the morning before 7.00 am at fully developed
tight bud stage and the buds are tied into strings and cut into pieces of 30 cm length. The
strings are dipped in 4% boric acid and surface dried. Five pieces of strings are packed in a
small aluminium lined cardboard box (11 x 13.5 x 4 cm) and further lined with butter paper.
Twenty four such boxes are in turn packed in a larger thermocol box (60 x 45 x 30 cm) lined
with aluminium foil (in 3 layers with 8 boxes per layer) and ice gel sheets are placed in
between each layer and the top layer is covered with aluminium foil. The boxes are closed
and covered with brown sealing tape after which the packages can be airlifted.
