Cloves, coffe and cocoa are grown on Flores. Clove flower buds are dried on plastic sheets in the sun after having been harvested from clove trees. All over the island there are rice paddies, either in the plains or in terraces along mountain slopes. Rice is grown even in the dry season, as Flores receives enough rain because of its mountain ranges. The Arak liquor is distilled out of fermented sugar obtained from the Palmyra palm.
