Chilean clementines increase by 2.5% this season

The current season of clementines in Chile is being concluded with “quite a success”, according to Juan Enrique Ortúzar, president of the Chile Citrus Committee (ASOEX). The expectation of the Chilean citrus growers was 10% higher production than the current situation, but the clementine season ended up with a 2.5% increase over the previous season. According to the Committee’s data, nearly 59,000 tons of clementines were sold this season, 57% of which were shipped to the East Coast of U.S., and 43% to the West Coast.
