NEWS : New production of Tunisian Neroli essential oil

Updated : 16/05/2013

Calm weather during the harvest period and satisfactory yields augur a good quality production in 2013

At Shedan, Astier Demarest's partner, blossom harvest commenced on 6 April with several days' delay due to cool weather during the month of March. Even so, it ended early, on 24 April, because flowering was accelerated by beautiful, warm weather during the harvest.

The estimated quantity of flowers at the beginning of the crop was 1,100 to 1,200 tons. A small portion was lost at the beginning of the season due to wind, and some orchards were not harvested due to a lack of available labour. In total, the factories have probably processed around 850 tons of flowers, a bit less than last year. Traditional distillation of local Orange flower water probably used some 250 tons, a bit more than last year, with flower prices being somewhat more accessible.

Yields were satisfactory, and marginally superior to last year's average. Otherwise, the price of flowers was reasonable and increased as and when the yield improved.

All-in-all, the improved yield of this year should compensate for the minor relative drop in quantity of flowers such that actual quantities of Neroli oil and Orange concrete produced in 2013 should be almost equivalent to those produced in 2012.

In addition, climatic conditions having been very good during the entire harvest period, without strong fluctuations of yield, we should expect oil of high quality.
