We end the year shipping the best citrus fruits from Spain!
The season for oranges, tangerine, and lemons of Spanish origin has already begun and will end in July 2021.
Of excellent quality, these citrus fruits are the most popular on the market, mainly the Clementine tangerine, with a volume that is higher each season.
Despite having strong competition and having suffered the consequences of the COVID 19 pandemic, Spain is a leader in exports and offers a global offer that has not stopped growing. The Iberian country is the sixth-largest producer of fresh citrus fruits and the world's leading exporter of oranges, tangerines, and lemons.
The demand for Spanish oranges is going through a good market moment. The producers aim to maintain the levels of last year's campaign, in which strong demand caused stocks to run out.
For their part, Clementine tangerines are the most popular because of their good color, juice, pleasant flavor, and seedless condition.
As for Spanish lemons, Fino and Verna's varieties have adequate quality and commercial size, as well as a health guarantee and excellent service, guaranteeing the consumer a very fresh product.
“Despite the logistical and production difficulties generated by Covid-19 this year, the demand for vegetables, greens and fruits increased during the quarantine up to 40%, above dry food, because they were basic ingredients from the diet due to the health benefits they have,” says Juan Gonzalez Pita, Founder of Salix.
