Citrus

  • Juicy and sweet and renowned for its concentration of vitamin C, oranges make the perfect snack and add a special tang to many recipes; it is no wonder that they are one of the most popular fruits in the world. Oranges are round citrus fruits with finely-textured skins that are, of course, orange in color just like their pulpy flesh; the skin can vary in thickness from very thin to very thick.

 

  • We are mainly producing three varieties: Valencia, Washington and Hamlin and mandarins: Dancy, Sanguine as well as a variety of lemons including rough lemons normally used as rootstock.
  • Oranges are grown in most of the country mainly in Southern, Eastern and Western Provinces.
