NEWS : Tunisian Orange Flower

Updated : 25/04/2016

An agitated climate compromises harvest

Harvesting begun in late March, 12 days early due to relatively hot weather during the months of February and March, is now complete.

As a result of climatic disturbances (a warm winter which altered the normal cycle of the bitter orange trees, followed by dryness, strong winds, and then rain during the flowering period), the harvest is reduced in size by approximately 25 per cent compared with that of 2015 and the levels forecast for this year.

Total production in Tunisia is estimated between 1,150 and 1,200 tonnes, of which around 800 tonnes will go to industry.

Because of strong demand the price for the flower continued to rise during the harvest, reaching a 60 per cent increase compared with the last harvest.
