Cuba: grapefruit harvest has begun
Tholen – The harvest of grapefruit from the Cuban region of Ciego de
Ávila has begun. The production is largely controlled by the state.
Besides that, there is a part of production joined in grower
cooperatives. Together they expect a production of 10.000 MT, until
January 2007. This will bring the joint production volume of the area on
a total of 30.000 MT of citrus, combining oranges, lemons and mandarins,
which have been produced during previous months.
