In one of our most recent recordings for ‘The Pod’, our Head of Citrus Kenny and Head of Farming in South Africa, Kobus sat down virtually to discuss our vibrant Valencia orange production.

The pair chatted all things South African citrus but with a particular focus on the cultivation of our oranges and our farming practices.

Delving into why the Limpopo province lends itself so well to growing citrus and touching on why we have chosen to only grow Valencia oranges specifically for export, our citrus experts, Kenny and Kobus also spoke extensively on the sub-categories of the cultivar too.
