"They are also importing lemons from Turkey, Spain's main competitor."
According to Baides, some of the lemons shipped by Turkey have less juice and thicker skin than Spanish lemons. Growers receive 80 to 90 cents for them and final prices range between 1.10 and 1.20 Euro per kilo; around 30 cents cheaper than Spanish lemons. "Quality is not as good as that of Spanish citrus, but they are cheaper," he explains.
