Lemons: Spain dominates German trade

The Spanish supply dominated the sales. The Turkish lemons in 5 kg and 9 kg boxes completed the range. Greek lemons were found in Frankfurt in 15 kg containers. The supply was sufficient to meet the constant demand. The supermarket returns influenced the trade in some places. The price often decreased due to the large supply. Even for the flawless lemons the prices had to be adjusted.
