Citrus at the supermarket
« on: September 15, 2018, 09:20:52 PM »


I went to the supermarket this morning and noticed how the citrus is laid out. My local supermarket has around 15 to 25 varieties at any one time all laid out in neat rows. They change around varieties regularly. It is totally different from the haphazard nature of the local markets.It would be interesting to see what citrus is on offer in supermarkets in various places.

Sunny that is gold nugget and yes it is all grown in Australia. There is plenty of varieties and volume grown here over a wide area. Exports are pretty substantial for citrus with china, japan, korea, taiwan and the US importing from Australia.
