"We finally had a hot summer with little rain. It helped consumption as well as improving the quality of the fruit."
"I am noticing a continuous improvement in the varieties we are introducing and I expect they will soon replace the ones we are cultivating now. These melons have a better shelf-life, appearance and taste, which might lead to an increase in consumption. This in fact generally depends on the quality of the fruit rather than on the prices, as the product is generally quite cheap."
