Citrus fruits early this year

Harvest espectations for citrus fruits are about to be the same as last year.

Mandarines, oranges and lemons seem to be 2 weeks earlier as normally. Mainly mandarines from Morocco are taking a high start.

Spain, Morocco and Egypt are facing more competition on these fruits from South Africa. Peru is untill now exporting less than normal.

Regards South Africa, they face a not interesting Rand exchange rate and export costs are dropping but not as much as they rose.
