"Rain washes away expected record Spanish mandarin production"

The steady rainfall in Spain has not benefited citrus cultivation, says a producer in that country. "At the start of the season, we were glad of some rain."

"But the abundant rainfall has caused damage. We expected a record mandarin production. Now, we'll have to see if the Nadorcott mandarins will even match last year's volume."

The Spanish company will continue with oranges until late June/early July. According to the trader, Spanish citrus prices are nothing special. Though, sales to the Western European market are still going well. "There's now slightly more market competition from other summer fruits, like stone fruit."

Spanish blood oranges are gaining popularity. "They're not very well known yet, but are well received by European customers," the producer concludes.
