Morocco off to a flying start
Our soft citrus season in Morocco is off to a flying start with our exceptional Clemenules now harvesting.
Harvested from week 41, citrus orchards in the Marrakech, Rabat and Agadir regions of Morocco provide excellent climactic diversity.
Cooler nights in the shadow of the Atlas Mountains allow for early maturation on Nadorcott and ensure first rate colouration of the fruit, with the sweetness of the soft citrus developing naturally.
Exceptionally easy to peel, with an irresistible eating quality, Clemenules are a seedless variety with a typical bright orange skin.
The soft and juicy segments of this cultivar are a firm favourite as a to-go snack due to their immense health benefits and the typically juicy and sweet eating quality.
It has been a strong start for Jupiter grown citrus fruit in Morocco and although we’re in the early stages, we are well placed to provide great volumes and fantastic quality as we move through the season.
