OVERVIEW GLOBAL MELON AND WATERMELON MARKET

Compared to last year, conditions are tough in the watermelon market. The production on the European market currently…

OVERVIEW GLOBAL LIME MARKET

Most of the limes imported by Europe and North America come from Mexico and Brazil. Other Latin American countries also have production for export.
