UK: Octubrina clementines up 50% in second year

Launched exclusively with Tesco last year, Octubrina clementines, supplied by AMT Fruit, are back on the retailer’s shelves.

Octubrina has been developed in conjunction with leading varietal specialist company,Citrus Genesis, and will look to replace current early season varieties such as Marisol and Arrufarina. Volume this year will increase by over 50% with up to 50 tonnes expected.

The fruit has a deep orange colour, is easy to peel and seedless when produced in isolation.

Emma Martin, Tesco Citrus buyer, commented:

“Octubrina is a great example of Tesco’s commitment to constantly improving our quality for customers. Working in partnership with AMT Fruit, we are excited about the potential of this variety and others we have in the pipeline for the future.”

Octubrina is available late October/Early November
