The third season of the late Tang Gold mandarin from Linbo®️, a brand known for its excellent taste profile as well as the interesting marketing period (February-April) will start in February.
Carton with Linbo mandarins - season 2022
"We are preparing for the best growing and marketing season since the launch of the brand," said Francesco Paolo Gallo, president of the Linbo consortium. "At the moment we have about 100 hectares in production and another 40 hectares will be added in the coming years. This year the orchards are showing excellent gauge sizes and we expect double the harvest of last season. A fifth of that is organic product, which stands out on the shelf from conventional product like Linbo Bio with its own logo."
Current state of cultivation
A novelty for 2023 is the zero-residue fruit. "In addition to organic, we now want to market zero residue fruit. It' s only a small percentage of our offering this year, but in the coming seasons most of what is conventional now will become zero residue. We are making great leaps forward and we owe that mainly to our technicians, who every day assist member growers with advice on innovative and modern growing techniques."
Current state of the fruit
"We are already seeing a certain enthusiasm among traders. Foreign distributors also see the Linbo club as a reliable partner. Retail is the most important sales channel for our product. The fruit is still ripening now. We expect to start supplying in the first ten days of February, but everything will depend on the weather."
