China: Beihai Wo oranges officially enter market

The Wo orange generally ripens in January, making it the first fruit of the year. This year, there are only small quantities of the fruit on the market. Wo oranges are mainly grown in Guangxi, in the northern part of the Gulf of Tonkin in China. They are originally from the Israeli Orah. It is a new, late ripening variety, and a crossbreed of Temple oranges and Dancy tangerines which entered into production in 2004. 

Wuming District in Guangxi has a warm climate with high temperatures and abundant rain, making it a perfect region for the production of Wo oranges. In 2017, the Wo orange production area in Wuming District was 30,800 hectares (308,000 mu). The consumer interest and market for Beihai Wo oranges have been gradually expanding. The oranges are not only sold in China, but are also exported abroad.
