Citrofrut is the most important producer and processor of Valencia Orange in Mexico, To date, at Citrofrut we care for over 2.3 million orange trees in our groves. All our orchards are going through a Sustainable Agriculture Accreditation.
The orange is a round fruit, orange in color, consumed mainly in winter. The pulp inside is also orange and is made up of small sachets filled with juice.
Orange production is recommended in temperatures between 15 and 29 degrees, however, orange production can occur in other weather conditions, as long as the necessary treatment is given.
Brazil is the world leader in orange production, as well as citrus fruit in general, thanks to its favorable terrain and climate conditions.
According to the most recent statistics, the South American country has an orange production of 17 million tons per year, followed by China with 8.69 million tons.
Mexico ranks fourth in the world in orange production, only surpassed by the United States, China and Brazil.
Annual orange production is 4.63 million tons per year, with 44 percent coming from Veracruz.
Some of the difficulties orange production faces have to do with sudden changes in temperature, which can damage an entire harvest.
In addition, world economic problems also affect orange production, due to the lower demand that may arise.
Annually, orange production begins in October and lasts until April or May, thanks to weather conditions.
These months are essential for orange production, since the subsoil temperature, humidity and the amount of sunlight are ideal.
