Spain: Start of quince season
Quinces, which usually hit the market at the start of autumn, are beginning to arrive. It is a fruit that, because of its flavour and texture, is mostly consumed in processed form.
"This is an advantage for its producers, who are not burdened by the need to sell it quickly to prevent it from spoiling," explains Manuel Jesús Abril, manager of Mediterranean Fruits & Vegetables.
As with other products, the start of the campaign is marked by high prices, reaching 1.15 Euro per kilo for calibre 85, and as the campaign develops, these gradually go down.
Quince production is stable, with most of it concentrated in Andalusia. "I hope to be able to market about 50 tonnes this year," explains Abril, who will sell them to his Spanish customers, although he knows that they will export them. "I think South Africa is a very good market for this product, as are China and Japan."
