Moroccan citrus on the horizon
Our superb soft citrus matures on farm in Morocco and is perfectly situated to provide fruit from the very first to the very last week of the season.
Harvesting around week 40, citrus farms in the Marrakech, Rabat and Agadir regions of Morocco provide outstanding climactic diversity.
So far this season our citrus has enjoyed the ideal conditions found in the north of Africa. This summer has seen the usual high temperatures found in the region, complemented by fantastic cool nights that can aid the development of our fruit.
